MySQL: ERROR 1356 (HY000): View ‘sys.innodb_lock_waits’ references invalid table(s) or column(s) or function(s) or definer/invoker of view lack rights to use them

Hello all!
So, I was messing around with a Dev environment to simulate some strategies, doing some tests, and after a mysqldump exporting, dropping, and reimporting my whole database got this error.

If you arrived here from Google, Is this your case?

Well, this happens for a simple reason. The routines are not exported by mysqldump by default. Why? I don’t know either, this is an abomination to me. This would be very cheap to be the default right?

Happens that even for a new database, when importing a dump generated with –all-databases the sys/information_schema routines are deleted by the restore process. Well, at least this is recognized as a Bug (Bug 83259).

I noticed that when trying to query a sys view to get locks info, as per:

root@localhost-(none)-13:46:26>SELECT waiting_trx_id, waiting_pid, waiting_query, blocking_trx_id,
-> blocking_pid, blocking_query FROM sys.innodb_lock_waits;
ERROR 1356 (HY000): View 'sys.innodb_lock_waits' references invalid table(s) or column(s) or function(s) or definer/invoker of view lack rights to use them

Hm.. Weird message, let’s check for information_schema objects:

root@localhost-(none)-13:46:39>select count(*) from information_schema.ROUTINES where ROUTINE_SCHEMA='sys';
+----------+
| count(*) |
+----------+
| 0 |
+----------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Ok, so, if you are already in this mess, how to quick recover?
Well, just run the mysql_upgrade (assuming you are in the top version/repository you have available on server):

root@localhost-(none)-13:47:34>exit

GRID Infrastructure life after rootcrs.pl -deconfig -force -verbose -lastnode

Hi all,

I had a client which asked us to reconfigure the GRID infrastructure on 11g after the did a:

$GI_HOME/crs/install/rootcrs.pl -deconfig -force -verbose -lastnode

The “deconfig” option is used when we need to remove the GI configuration cleanly and the “lastnode”  is executed on the last cluster node.

But what we need to do to recreate the the cluster? Well most would say “Run root.sh again” and that should solve it on most cases.

But when I tried to execute it I have several issues on crsconfig_params file. I tried to manually add the missing data and as there was much info to add but what to do next?

A colleague pointed to 2 MOS notes:

How to Deconfigure/Reconfigure(Rebuild OCR) or Deinstall Grid Infrastructure (Doc ID 1377349.1)
How to Configure or Re-configure Grid Infrastructure With config.sh/config.bat (Doc ID 1354258.1)

So if you follow those notes  you should prepare a response run the config.sh to create a proper crsconfig_params and then run root.sh
