Applies to:

MySQL Server - Version 5.7 to 5.7 [Release 5.7]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In the latest release of MySQL Shell v1.0.10, when performing the command on a working InnoDB Cluster:

var cluster = dba.createCluster('prodCluster', {adoptFromGR: true});

An error is displayed:

Dba.createCluster: Dba.checkInstanceConfiguration: The instance '' is already part of a Replication Group (RuntimeError)


In MySQL Shell v1.0.9, the same command run with success and an InnoDB Cluster is created as expected:

mysql-js> var cluster = dba.createCluster('prodCluster', {adoptFromGR: true});
A new InnoDB cluster will be created on instance ''.

Creating InnoDB cluster 'prodCluster' on ''...
Adding Seed Instance...

Cluster successfully created. Use Cluster.addInstance() to add MySQL instances.
At least 3 instances are needed for the cluster to be able to withstand up to one server failure.
