> Upgraded from 3.22.27 to 3.23.32. Built from source.
> When attempting to start the daemon, it immediately terminates. Log file shows
> "Can't find file: 'host.ISM' (errno: 2)". I checked the old data directory (from where I
> copied the database files) and there never has been a host.ISM file. I don't see a
> reference to this in the trouble shoot guides.
> Please note: I cannot go to the current version as this machine (development) cannot
> be on a higher version that the production machine, which is on 3.23.32.
> Use either safe_mysqld or mysql.server to start. Same symptoms.
> Looking for fix.
