Creating a Test Lab Using VirtualBox / NAT networking
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

My job is almost completely reliant upon my ability to perform work in lab of virtual machines. Almost every action plan I write is tested locally. When I need to troubleshoot an issue for a client one of the most common first steps I’ll perform is attempting to recreate the issue in a virtual environment so I can work on it there without the risk of impacting client data.

I believe that having a place to test and grow your skills is an absolute necessity for anyone working in the IT field today regardless of your specialization, even if you’re an IT generalist. But every now and then I hear about individuals who have issues with their virtual machines or …

Employee_Team +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Compiling MySQL Workbench yourself is quite a common task for Linux users, even though the application is available precompiled for certain platforms ready from our download page and available in our yum and apt repositories. In this blog post we show you how to compile it on Windows.


Doing a build on Windows is a totally different matter and most users never need to do that. It’s mostly intersting for those wanting own functionality or just being curious. But you should be an experienced Visual Studio user. It’s a complicated task and not a good start for a beginner. The key problem when building on Windows is that we cannot …

Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Edit: added sample table output in MySQL

MySQL Workbench 6.2 introduces support for MS Access migration. This tutorial should help you get your Access tables, indexes, relationships and data in MySQL.


Because MS Access ODBC drivers are only available for Windows, migrating from it is also only possible from Windows. As for the destination MySQL server, you can have it in the same local machine or elsewhere in your network.

MS Access stores relationship/foreign key information in an internal table called MSysRelationships. That table is …

Employee_Team +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Do you know this scenario: you are writing down  a stored procedure but you can’t for the life of you remember the exact syntax of that CASE statement? Has it to end with CASE or not? Can I use more than one WHEN part and how should that be written? Usually you end up opening a web page and read through the excellent MySQL online docs. However, this might cost too much time if you quickly need different statements and other detail info. Here’s where MySQL Workbench’s context help jumps in.

Video Tutorial: Setup a Restricted SQL Server Account for Migrations with MySQL Workbench
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Some users have asked us what is the minimum set of privileges that your Microsoft SQL Server user needs to successfully migrate databases from SQL Server using the MySQL Workbench Migration Wizard. Even though we don’t execute any query that alters anything in your source RDBMS servers, it’s never a bad idea to add an extra security barrier around it.

In short, you need the VIEW ANY DEFINITION permission for the server and the CONNECT and SELECT permissions for the database(s) you want to migrate. But to make this easier for you, we have created a video tutorial showing how to create a user with these permissions using the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.

In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to migrate your Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise databases to MySQL.

MySQL Workbench 6.0: Model Synchronization Improvements
Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In MySQL Workbench 6.0, three longstanding issues related to model synchronization were addressed. In this post, we’ll cover how these issues can happen, the underlying cause and how to resolve them.

Model Synchronization

When you synchronize a model to a database, Workbench performs the following steps:

  1. Retrieve and reverse engineer the target schema from the database, to an internal representation that can be worked on by Workbench
  2. Compare the schema from the model with the corresponding schema from the database, object by object
  3. For each difference found, perform the …

Employee_Team +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

scr 1. Location of Search table data on the main toolbar

One of the new features of MySQL Workbench 6.0 is Table Data Search. The main purpose of this was to ease data searching through the whole instance. Previously, we needed to use some tricks to get the query to run over all schemas that we’ve got on the server. Now it’s easy to find the searched term with much less hassle. This functionality is easy to use and provides searching through all columns and even all types. However, we …
