This article documents a known limitation with the mysql MCS Enhanced profile configuration. IM and AC probe configuration offer this functionality. 

The current mysql mcs template design will use the default path (e.g. /tmp/mysql.sock) however, in some scenarios distributors use a custom path. 


Release : 20.3

Component : UIM MYSQL

MCS Template : mysql_mcs_templates v1.53

Probe : mysql v1.54


Engineering has created a new mysql_mcs_templates package which allows users to define the mysql.sock file path and also the protocol used. 

Build details: MCS snapshot build v1.54-SNAPSHOT

This change will be included in the next GA release of the mysql_mcs_templates package. 

If you require this build please contact support.
