Amazon Aurora (compatibility with MySQL): Bin Directory and Utilities to Perform Import

To perform the import process automatically, the SQLWays Wizard must be provided with the credentials of the target database and the Bin Directory.

Bin Directory is a path to a folder containing command line utility of the target database (like psql.exe, sqlcmd.exe, mysql.exe and others) with which the import process is performed.

During the import this utility connects to the target database using username and password and performs the creation of all objects that were converted by the tool.

So, it is very important to provide correct Bin Directory for import performing. In case of missing the appropriate utility on the local machine which is using for conversion, it's necessary to install the DB client for a target database.

For Amazon Aurora database a path to the folder containing mysql.exe native utility has to be specified. The default location of this utility is the directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Workbench 6.1 CE\. Or you can find it in the directory specified during the installation process of MySQL Workbench.

If this utility is not available on the computer where the migration process will take place, then you will need to download the MySQL Workbench, for example, from the MySQL official website and install it on your computer.
