=head1 DESCRIPTION
B<mysqlsetup> - Sets up the MySQL or MariaDB database (linux only for MariaDB) for xCAT to use. The mysqlsetup script is run on the Management Node as root after the MySQL code or MariaDB code has been installed. Before running the init option, the MySQL server should be stopped, if it is running. The xCAT daemon, xcatd, must be running, do not stop it. No xCAT commands should be run during the init process, because we will be migrating the xCAT database to MySQL or MariaDB and restarting the xcatd daemon as well as the MySQL daemon. For full information on all the steps that will be done, read the "Configure MySQL and Migrate xCAT Data to MySQL" sections in
