Unable to connect to database: Access denied for user 'xxx'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

Hello,

After a clean install of Powerdns with a mysql backend, on two out of four machines we are seeing Powerdns try to login to mysql without a password.

May  4 16:46:34 powerdns-002-uc1b pdns[27334]: Caught an exception instantiating a backend: Unable to launch gmysql connection: Unable to connect to database: Access denied for user 'pdns'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

May  4 16:46:34 powerdns-002-uc1b pdns[27334]: Cleaning up

May  4 16:46:34 powerdns-002-uc1b pdns_server[27332]: May 04 16:46:34 Caught an exception instantiating a backend: Unable to launch gmysql connection: Unable to connect to database: Access denied for user 'pdns'@'localhost' (using password: NO)


The user and the password work from the cli and I have made sure to use "launch=gmysql" with the appropriate backend conf file. Cannot figure out why pdns isn't using a password.

Have you seen this before? Please advise?

Thanks,
SB

Fixed it. Wasn't Powerdns. Turns our the default install of percona mysql od Debian adds some annon users that were interfering with my pdns user.
