Changes in MySQL Utilities 1.6.3 (2016-03-22)

    Bugs Fixed

      * The --exclude option for the mysqldbexport command did
        not function. (Bug #22781266)

      * The mysqlfailover and mysqlrpladmin utilities did not
        function with MySQL 5.7 Servers. During the failover
        process, they failed with the following error: "Errors:
        Missing gtid_executed system variable." (Bug #22617526,
        Bug #80189)

      * The mysqlrplsync and mysqldbcopy utilities did not
        function with MySQL 5.7 when used in a topology with a
        master. The problem was due to table locking, and began
        occurring when session_variables was moved to
        PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA in MySQL 5.7.6. The master UUID is now
        retrieved before locking the tables. (Bug #22608528, Bug
        #22628187, Bug #80200)

      * Several man pages were missing from the RPM package. (Bug
        #21905774, Bug #78580)

      * The mysqldbcompare utility now checks if MySQL servers
        are aliases. (Bug #21845449, Bug #78446)

      * Using the mysqlauditgrep utility with the --format option
        would throw an exception when the audit log file
        contained Unicode characters, and when the format was
        changed to something other than the default RAW. The
        error looked similar to "UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii'
        codec can't encode characters in position". (Bug

      * With the mysqldbcompare utility, using the same
        connection information for both --server1 and --server2
        with the --all option would raise an AttributeError
        error. (Bug #21839348, Bug #78439)

      * The mysqldbexport utility's --exclude option was ignored
        for data when passing in either the data or both value.
        (Bug #21784538)

      * Several utilities (the daemon utilities, mysqlfailover,
        and mysqlrplms) created pid files with the default
        permissions on *nix systems (0777). The permissions are
        now more restrictive. (Bug #21653496)

      * MySQL Utilities failed to execute when the sql_mode
        option included "ANSI_QUOTES". (Bug #21653352, Bug

      * Executing the mysqldbcompare utility to find differences
        between two databases on different hosts could fail with
        an error similar to "Unread result found". (Bug
        #21572065, Bug #73841)

      * The MySQL utilities did not function with .mylogin.cnf as
        of MySQL Server 5.6.25. (Bug #21343759, Bug #77550)

      * The Windows MSI 64-bit package, by default, installed in
        "Program Files (x86)\" on a 64-bit system, instead of
        "Program Files\". (Bug #20876820)

      * The mysqldiskusage utility incorrectly calculated disk
        usage, leading to an inaccurate result. (Bug #76703)
