I have this MySQL cluster running and I wanted to add a sql node.
So I have added the new node to the management node and added the management node to the my.cnf of the sql node.
After that I have restarted all the datanodes and when I view the configuration in the management node it shows the following:

Cluster Configuration
[ndbd(NDB)]     2 node(s)
id=2    @  (Version: 5.0.32, Nodegroup: 0)
id=3    @  (Version: 5.0.32, Nodegroup: 0, Master)

[ndb_mgmd(MGM)] 1 node(s)
id=1    @  (Version: 5.0.32)

[mysqld(API)]   2 node(s)
id=4    @  (Version: 5.0.32)
id=5    @  (Version: 5.0.32)

So everything seems to be configured correctly and the cluster management node is aware of all the data and sql nodes.
The problem however is, that the new datanode does not load the databases. When I would do execute 'SHOW DATABASES' on the new sql node it only shows me the standard databases which come with MySQL, and not the databases running in the cluster.

Is there a step that I have forgotten?
