MySQL Workbench Server Administration Tools ("etc/init.d/mysqld start is invalid")

I installed the package mysql-server and MySQL Workbench as well onto FC16. I find that Workbench will connect to localhost easily however when I try to use the "Server Administration" Tools I get this error:

"/etc/init.d/mysqld start is invalid"

I was wondering if this is perhaps a permissions issue with Workbench not being able to start mysqld as I am not able to really log in as root. Is there a way to start Worbench with elevated permissions through the GUI somehow? Is su - and then running Worbench my only way to troubleshoot? Has anyone experienced this error before?

Thanks!

All I can say is the Server Administration section works fine for me on fedora 15. The message you quoted seems to indicate you are trying to start the mysql daemon which would be unusual. On my system mysqld starts on boot.

Maybe you have tweaked some configuration setting incorrectly in mysql workbench.

I never made any configuration changes at all to either. I just installed the packages. My mysql installation does not even have a password yet. It is that new.

Try to start mysqld by hand.

Re: MySQL Workbench Server Administration Tools ("etc/init.d/mysqld start is invalid"

Code:
[penguin@Penguin-PC ~]$ sudo service mysqld start
[sudo] password for penguin: 
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl  start mysqld.service
[penguin@Penguin-PC ~]$
What does that mean?

Here is a status of it:

Code:
[penguin@Penguin-PC ~]$ sudo service mysqld status
[sudo] password for penguin: 
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl  status mysqld.service
mysqld.service - MySQL database server
	  Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/mysqld.service; enabled)
	  Active: active (running) since Mon, 12 Mar 2012 17:43:45 -0700; 57min ago
	Main PID: 1320 (mysqld)
	  CGroup: name=systemd:/system/mysqld.service
		  └ 1320 /usr/libexec/mysqld --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/...
[penguin@Penguin-PC ~]$
When I installed mysql I used the GUI package manager. I'm wondering at this point if it would have mattered if I would have done yum install mysql-server from the start. I'm not really sure about all this.

Init has been replaced by systemd in Fedora. All the init scripts and the service command are deprecated and considered legacy.

Your MySQL tool probably has not been updated to be aware of this change.
