Bug Description

[In:Percona Toolkit Documentation]

There are conflicting configuration instructions on http://www.percona.com/doc/percona-xtradb-cluster/3nodesec2.html . The my.cnf file makes mysqld run as the mysql user (which was created via RPM package) but by following installation instructions the /mnt/data directory is set up as root:root ownership. I think the documentation should set the owner to at least mysql owner, like this:

mysql_install_db --datadir=/mnt/data --user=mysql

Hope this helps,
Michael Coburn
