Summary0000165: mysqladmin does not terminate after shutting down server
DescriptionAfter starting (command line 1) MySQL with "mysqld --console" in the data directory there are created (only the first time) 4 files:

 - ibdata1
 - ib_logfile0
 - ib_logfile1

Then the server seems to run and the following message appears:

[C:\PROGRAMS\MYSQL5\BIN]mysqld --console
InnoDB: The first specified data file .\ibdata1 did not exist:
InnoDB: a new database to be created!
070303 15:04:38 InnoDB: Setting file .\ibdata1 size to 10 MB
InnoDB: Database physically writes the file full: wait...

UNIX Socket is \socket\MySQL
070303 15:04:42 [Note] mysqld: ready for connections.
Version: '5.0.33' socket: '\socket\MySQL' port: 3306 Source distribution

Now I have complete and correct access to the DB..

Trying to shutdown the server (mysqladmin.exe -u root shutdown) (command line 2) the following things happens:

 - the server-process (command line 1) seems to be stopped
 - then after waiting for a long time the message is shown:

[C:\PROGRAMS\MYSQL5\BIN]mysqladmin.exe -u root shutdown
Warning; Aborted waiting on pid file: 'C:/PROGRAMS/mysql5\data\' a
fter 3600 seconds

Trying to restart the server again, the following message is shown:

[C:\PROGRAMS\MYSQL5\BIN]mysqld --console
070303 14:54:27 InnoDB: Database was not shut down normally!
InnoDB: Starting crash recovery.
InnoDB: Reading tablespace information from the .ibd files...
InnoDB: Restoring possible half-written data pages from the doublewrite
InnoDB: buffer...
InnoDB: Error: tried to read 1048576 bytes at offset 0 1048576.
InnoDB: Was only able to read -1.
070303 14:54:27 InnoDB: Operating system error number 22 in a file operation.
InnoDB: Error number 22 means 'Invalid argument'.
InnoDB: Some operating system error numbers are described at

InnoDB: File operation call: 'read'.
InnoDB: Cannot continue operation.

--> to restart the server again, I have to kill the 4 generated files...

Exactly the same behaviour can be observed on my system with MySQL Version 5.0.45.
Additionaly, the server can be restarted without the InnoDB storage engine (option --skip-innodb)

Please check that your my.cnf contains the lines:

port = 3306
socket = \\socket\MySQL

(add other bind-addresses if needed, and note the double-backslash for the socket name).

Then, when you wish to shut down the server use:

mysqladmin.exe --host -u root shutdown

This will allow the shutdown to work correctly. There is a known problem with mysqldadmin and named-pipe communication on some systems, hence forcing TCP communication above.

Let us know how it goes!

This has again reached the top of my list.

Stephen, is issue the mysqladmin termination, but the mysqld termination. The later has haver been an issue here.

The reason mysqladmin hangs, is because the daemon fails to delete the .pid file.

The code hangs in wait_pidfile() in client\ The wait loop will eventually timeout, but the default timeout is 60 minutes.

The clean_up() function in sql\ is supposed to delete the .pid file, but this appears to be failing for a non-obvious reason.
