Do storage nodes need a local MySQL server?
I installed a Storage Node on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and was surprised to see that it installed MySQL server (or rather, MariaDB). As near as I can tell, the nodes don’t actually use the local database, and instead use the FOG master server’s database.
Am I missing something? Does the Node need that local database, or can I just disabled the service?
Thank you. I understand the complexity issue and removing the DB manually is easy enough.
@mechalas You can disable the DB service on the storage node. While it would be more clear to not at all install a couple of things on the storage node it would make the installer scripts even more complex and we never found the time to change this as there always seemed other things more important.
