Can't save "Add New Monitor" in ZM-Console

Postby dorus43 » Sat Apr 23, 2016 4:20 pm

I have a good working system on an other desktop (lubuntu 15.10 with Zoneminder 1.28), there
I can add my 2 IP camera's ( D-link 932L) without any problem.

On an other desktop I installed Ubuntu 16.04 (Amd 64) and installed zoneminder 1.29 via
https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu_Serv ... e_easy_way.

I had a few missing dependencies, but overall I got the ZM-console without to many problems.

When adding my 2 camera's ( with the same data as in the "Zoneminder 1.28 " system) I noticed an additional field "Server" with the not changeable value 'None'.


When I tried to save it, the window shows:


SQL-ERR 'SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 1366 Incorrect integer value: '' for column 'ServerId' at row 1', statement was 'insert into Monitors set LinkedMonitors = '', Name = 'Monitor-1', ServerId = '', Type = 'Remote', Function = 'Monitor', Enabled = '1', RefBlendPerc = '6', AlarmRefBlendPerc = '6', AnalysisFPS = '', MaxFPS = '', AlarmMaxFPS = '', Device = '/dev/video0', Channel = '0', Format = '255', Palette = '0', V4LMultiBuffer = '', V4LCapturesPerFrame = '1', Options = '', LabelFormat = '%N - %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S %z', LabelX = '0', LabelY = '0', LabelSize = '1', ImageBufferCount = '50', WarmupCount = '25', PreEventCount = '25', PostEventCount = '25', StreamReplayBuffer = '1000', AlarmFrameCount = '1', EventPrefix = 'Event-', SectionLength = '600', FrameSkip = '0', MotionFrameSkip = '0', AnalysisUpdateDelay = '0', FPSReportInterval = '1000', DefaultView = 'Events', DefaultRate = '100', DefaultScale = '100', WebColour = 'red', Exif = '0', SignalCheckColour = '#0000c0', Protocol = 'http', Method = 'simple', Host = 'admin:dorus43@192.168.2.5', Port = '80', Path = 'video.cgi', Colours = '4', Width = '640', Height = '480', Orientation = '0', Deinterlacing = '0', Sequence = 1'


Any help will be appreciated

I had the same problem with my install on Debian 8 with MySQL upgraded to v5.6.

Long story short, you probably need to have the line

Code: Select all

sql_mode=NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION
in file /etc/mysql/my.cnf in place of

Code: Select all

sql_mode=NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION,STRICT_TRANS_TABLES

The serverid column is integer, so should only accept either an integet value or NULL. It should not accept a zero length string, which is what it is being supplied instead of a NULL value. Removing the STRICT_TRANS_TABLES option from the above line of the config file tells MySQL to operate in a more permissive (but technically incorrect) manner. It looks like a rookie programming error that hasn't yet been corrected but I guess there might also be a more involved reason why it's as it is.

All that stuff is in the instructions.

When all else fails...

The guide that the OP refers to makes no mention of the STRICT_TRANS_TABLES directive, which is what *appears* to be the issue here. We'll need to await the OP's response to see if its removal was necessary. In my case, the sql_mode was set to "NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION,STRICT_TRANS_TABLES" from the beginning and it took a bit of detective work to figure out what was going wrong. The Debian installation guide does not cover this point, nor could I find anything related to it when upgrading MySQL to version 5.6.

@krasnal Thanks for your help, but neither in /etc/mysql/my.cnf or in ~/.my.cnf ,
I could find "sql_mode=NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION,STRICT_TRANS_TABLES", but in /usr/share/mysql/my-default.cnf
I found it and changed it to" sql_mode=NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION" restarted the system, but unfortunately it didn't solve
my problem.
Has anybody has an other suggestion ?
Thanks

@dorus43 The instructions mention that you should

Code: Select all

cp /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/mysqld.cnf /etc/mysql/my.cnf
and then edit the second file. Do you have the "NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION" line in the second file?

You can also logon to mysql (mysql -u root -p) and run the following

Code: Select all

SELECT @@GLOBAL.sql_mode;
SELECT @@SESSION.sql_mode;

Maybe they'll throw something up.

Well, it should be there, so you'll need to edit the file.

The sql queries show that STRICT_TRANS_TABLES is still set. I think it's the root cause of your problem.

Hello,
For me, it only worked by adding "sql_mode = NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION" to /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/mysqld.cnf
Adding it my.cnf prevented mysql to restart...
Thank you for your great help
