ndb_drop_index(1)            MySQL Database System           ndb_drop_index(1)


       ndb_drop_index - drop index from an NDB table


       ndb_drop_index options


       ndb_drop_index drops the specified index from an NDB table.  It is
       recommended that you use this utility only as an example for writing
       NDB API applications--see the Warning later in this section for

           ndb_drop_index -c connect_string table_name index -d db_name

       The statement shown above drops the index named index from the table in
       the database.
                 Additional Options
               .PP None that are specific to this application.

           Operations performed on Cluster table indexes using the NDB API are
           not visible to MySQL and make the table unusable by a MySQL server.
           If you use this program to drop an index, then try to access the
           table from an SQL node, an error results, as shown here:

           shell> ./ndb_drop_index -c localhost dogs ix -d ctest1
           Dropping index dogs/idx...OK
           NDBT_ProgramExit: 0 - OK
           shell> ./mysql -u jon -p ctest1
           Enter password: *******
           Reading table information for completion of table and column names
           You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A
           Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
           Your MySQL connection id is 7 to server version: 5.1.61-ndb-7.1.21
           Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.
           mysql> SHOW TABLES;
           | Tables_in_ctest1 |
           | a                |
           | bt1              |
           | bt2              |
           | dogs             |
           | employees        |
           | fish             |
           6 rows in set (0.00 sec)
           mysql> SELECT * FROM dogs;
           ERROR 1296 (HY000): Got error 4243 'Index not found' from NDBCLUSTER

       In such a case, your only option for making the table available to
       MySQL again is to drop the table and re-create it. You can use either
       the SQL statementDROP TABLE or the ndb_drop_table utility (see
       ndb_drop_table(1)) to drop the table.
