I am trying to move the ibdata files to a new drive on my server (Red Hat), but am running into some issues. Here are the steps that I took:

1. Stop the MySQL Service
2. Edit the my.cnf file by adding the following lines:


innodb_log_group_home_dir=/db/idbdata
innodb_data_file_path=ibdata1:10M:autoextend
innodb_log_files_in_group=2
innodb_data_home_dir=/db/idbdata

3. Copy the ibdata1 file and the two ib_logfiles from /var/lib/mysql to /db/ibdata
4. Start the MySQL service backup

When I query any of the tables, specifically innodb tables I get the following error:

ERROR 1033 (HY000) on InnoDB configuration error

look at the .err log file in /var/lib/mysql/ as that will give a more detailed error

The error message says the same thing. What is weird, is I changed the size of the inndob file the my.cnf file from 50M to the current size of the file on disk and it worked.

Settings regarding the data files have to be the same when moving INNODB from server to server.
Very annoying it does not flag errors.
