Naresh9999Naresh9999 Current User Role Supporter
Hi Team,
We are getting the below PMM2 configuration issue while adding the mysql metrics to PMM2 agent.
DB Version: Mysql5.7
Connection check failed: Error 1045: Access denied for user 'pmm'@'' (using password: YES).
[email protected]:~# pmm-admin list
Service type  Service name         Address and port  Service ID

Agent type                     Status                  Agent ID                                   
pmm_agent                   Connected        /agent_id/fghghfgh-28ucb-fhug-a4a4-22fhghghgh
node_exporter              Running            /agent_id/fhfghfgh-d01u6-fghfg-8325-234vyyfrrf

NOTE: MySQL servers is running with SSL. we given the pmm user acces to with required ssl privilege.
Below is the Command we are using:
pmm-admin add mysql --query-source=slowlog --server-insecure-tls --username='pmm' --password='pwd' --host='' --port=3306
NOTE: If we tried to login with pmm user it is working fine, but if tried with the above pmm-admin command it is throwing the above error. Even we tried with the super user and pmm user with  % host also, but still we are getting the same issue.
Can somebody help us on PMM2 configuration issue.?

    @jrivera We tried the socket option which you suggested and it worked.
    pmm-admin add mysql --username=$USER --password=$PASSWORD --tls --tls-skip-verify $SERVICE_NAME $CONNECTION_PARAM 
    Below is the command which i used.
    pmm-admin add mysql --query-source=slowlog --server-insecure-tls --username='abc' --password='XXXX' --socket=/path/mysqld.sock
