We have an issue upgrading the DB(external), here is the error:


Gateway Database Upgrader.

Enter 'quit' to exit at any time.

Enter database host [localhost]: mysql-host

Enter database port [3306]:

Enter database name [ssg]:

Enter database username [gateway]:

Enter database password:

Database upgrade is required.

Software version : 10.1.00

Database version : 9.4.00

Perform upgrade? [No]: Yes

Enter Administrative Database Username [root]: gatewayRoot2

Enter Administrative Database Password:

Performing database upgrade:

Testing the upgrade on a test database ...

Creating test database "ssg_testUpgrade" (without audits).

Database creation may take a few minutes.

The database was not upgraded due to the following reasons:

You are not allowed to create a user with GRANT

No changes have been made to the database. Please correct the problem and try again.

Release : 10.1

Component :


2022-04-12T10:51:23.729133Z        99 Query     grant all on ssg_testUpgrade.* to gateway@'localhost'
2022-04-12T10:51:23.733976Z        98 Query     rollback

So this shows that the grants were rolled back. Hence, it was fixed after creating the 'user' locally.

i.e the user@local was required along with user@%

After creating user@local and granting it grant option like below, upgrade worked:
mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'user'@'localhost' with grant option;

Note: Here user can be 'gateway'
