  • Various fixes to bare-metal node provisioning

Under the [mysqld] section add this line:


Also, you need to change the schemas for both mysql databases (for both containers). Drop and rebuild the tables using full.schema.sql files as described here.


ORCA 5.0 includes integration with CouchDB to support the actor registry. The code for CouchDB is located here.
