The 'system-mysql' pod from Red Hat 3scale API Management fails with the following error message: "Unable to lock ./ibdata1 error: 11"

Solution Verified - Updated -


My Red Hat 3scale On-premises system is crashing and the system-mysql log outputs messages similar to the following:

2019-09-19T20:26:12.865449Z 0 [ERROR] InnoDB: Unable to lock ./ibdata1 error: 11
2019-09-19T20:26:12.865471Z 0 [Note] InnoDB: Check that you do not already have another mysqld process using the same InnoDB data or log files.
