Hey I'm getting a weird issue with mysql dumps on a Linux box


  1. Dump from mysql on box 1, the database has a mix of InnoDB and ISAM tables
  2. Copy the dump to box 2 Create a new database on box 2
  3. Run: source dumpfrombox1.sql

The Result:

  1. MySQL creates all the InnoDB tables and populates with data
  2. MySQL fails to create the ISAM tables with the error: ERROR 1 (HY000): Can't create/write to file '/navtech/DB/mysql/mydb/myisamtable.MYI' (Errcode: 13)

Everything I've read about that error talks about file permissions, but all the InnoDB files are being written to the same directory?

I checked /var/log/audit/audit.log and no entries get created when I run the import.

Any ideas?


Manually editing the dump so that all tables are InnoDB tables, the restore works.
