We are testing client connections to a Percona PAM enabled MySQL server on RH Linux. I am trying to connect to the database using Workbench version 6.1.4 on Windows 7. I have checked the “Enable Cleartext Authentication Plugin” toggle box. When i try to connect, i see the below error.
[COLOR=#FF0000]Operation failed: Authentication plugin ‘dialog’ cannot be loaded: The specified module could not be found.
I tried to connect the same data base using a java program. I faced the same problem. Then I found the below link and was able to get through after doing as suggested. http://rachitskillisaurus.blogspot.com/2014/06/percona-pam-authentication-in-jdbc.html
Is there a similar work around to connect from MySQL work bench from Windows ? How do we connect to this database from command line ?
