Subject:mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed error: 'Access denied for user 'ODBC'@'localhost' (using password: YES)'
View as plain text  
I am using WinXP.I am wanted to shutdown MySQL service from the command line
and ran the command "mysqladmin" -p root shutdown next the root password was
asked for,I entered the correct password, when I entered the password the
below displayed error was the result

mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'ODBC'@'localhost' (using password: YES)'



How can I correct this?
Is this because of a firewall preventing access to port 3306?If a firewall
is preventing access how was it able to ask for the password?

I have Nortan Internet Security trial version running and the windows
firewall is disabled.If this is caused by a firewall barrier please tell me
how to open the port in Nortan Internet Security.
