- Problem Description:
When performing a MySQL database backup, the following error message is received in the backup report
The 'information_schema' database is a virtual system database, which contains information about the user databases on the MySQL instance. It is read-only and cannot be backed up.
If you were to perform a backup of the 'information_schema' database using the mysqldump utility, the same error will also be returned.
To resolve the issue, please exclude the 'information_schema' database from the backup source. You can exclude the database in the Servosity web management console.
