AVG Admin and MySQL

Postby wmpattison » Fri Feb 11, 2011 12:54 pm

I cannot get the Admin server to work ontop of a MySQL database (Windows2003 server). When I run the Deploy wizard it comes back with an error

"You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual....." and it then references "near maxValue VARCHAR(255)".

I've done a lot of work on this. I pretty sure that it's something to do with the variable names maxValue & minValue which look like reserved words (maxValue is an SQL operator). Also, I don't think it likes "localtime" being in double quotes.

Trouble is if I edit mysql.sql (even with a HeX editor) it starts to complain about missing tables.

The response of AVG UK is "we don't support MySQL". Errr guys - yes you do, it says so on all your marketing material.

Anyone any ideas??

From the manual:

Please note the following information before proceeding:
MySQL Server 5 uses max_allowed_packet variable to set the maximum size of one
packet. Its default value is 1048576 bytes (1 MB) which is too low for AVG Admin
Server to work properly in most cases. We strongly recommend to change this value
to at least 10 MB. To do so, follow one of the solutions below:
· Set the value for the current run only
This will apply the setting until the restart of the server occurs. Then the default
value or value from my.ini will be used again.
Note: You need to be logged as administrator with MySQL root privileges in
order to do that.
· Login to your MySQL server and run this command:
set global max_allowed_packet = 10485760
· Change Settings in the my.ini file (permanent - recommended)
This will save the settings permanently, but requires restart of the MySQL
· Open the my.ini file on the MySQL server.
· Under the section [mysqld] change max_allowed_packet to the following
max_allowed_packet = 10485760
· Restart the mysqld daemon or the MySQL service.

I suspect they are trying to tell you that they don't provide support for the MySQL database - which I don't believe they do. They would provide support if the issue was with AVG Admin, but perhaps they are indicated that it's on the MySQL end.

Thanks for the the reply. Actually I did RTFM, and had made the change required to max_allowed_packet. Like I say in my original post, the problem is that in 3 places in the supplied AVG script there are table names / syntax that MySQL doesn't like. I know this to be true as I can step through the supplied script and watch it fail. I can also modify the script so it doesn't have the problem & hand craft the result into MySQL. The tables then build OK, but obviously AVGAdmin still doesn't work because the script has to run to completion as-is. The syntax issue is trivial (the supplied script uses double quotes, changing that to single works fine), and the table names that clash with MySQL reserved names could probebly be used if the script escaped them. It's frustratingly simple - but if I modify the script in any way it simply doesn't run properly.

How many computers are in your license? You can use the default Firebird database up to 300 computers, but I would change the logging under DataCenter>AVG DataCenter Settings>Scan results Options> to Pup or higher severity.

If you are still wanting to use My SQL you will need to use 5.1 located below at this time.


I suggest Windows (x86, 32-bit), MSI Installer Essentials - Recommended or Windows (x86, 64-bit), MSI Installer Essentials - Recommended

Anything else let me know.
