    How start mysql via mysqld-service using named pipes

    lpmon Novice

      I can start MySQL outside of JBoss with named pipes enabled and then configure a datasource to connect to it. If I launch MySQL via jmx (mysqld-service.xml) I see it running but when the datasource using it tries to connect it cannot. I see this in the log:

      Caused by: com.mysql.jdbc.CommunicationsException: Communications link failure

      There is a propery called namedPipePath. If I use that in the mysql startup (mysqld-service.xml) it will not start and says that is not a valid attribute. Error is: No Attribute found with name: namedPipePath

      My knowledge of named pipes is minimal. Does the connector/datasource need to know named pipe path in use? How do I find that? Or what?

      I must be missing some key configuration step. Help!

      Example configuration files would be great.

      From mysqld-service.xml


      from mysql-ds.xml

      <connection-property name="socketFactory">com.mysql.jdbc.NamedPipeSocketFactory</connection-property>
      <!-- commented out now, tried earlier connection-property name="namedPipePath">c:\pipe\MySQL</connection-property-->
