Missing libraries preventing mysql from starting 


Check for missing libraries. If any show "not found" then these libraries need to be installed.
Example below is the libaio library being missing but we have also seen this with numactl.

root# cd /opt/CA/MySql/bin 

root# ldd mysqld => (0x00007ffe723e0000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f04ddb1f000) => not found => /lib64/ (0x00007f04dd914000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f04dd6dd000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f04dd4d9000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f04dd2d1000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f04dcfca000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f04dccc8000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f04dcab2000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f04dc6e4000)
/lib64/ (0x00007f04ddd3b000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f04dc4e1000)

This showed that was missing 

You can install the package/library with yum :

root# yum install libaio
