Hi! Interesting error message…Can you please try to do the following:

  1. Run sudo rpm --install --replace-pkgs memsql-server-6.7.7-7669a637ba.x86_64.rpm

Does that install successfully? If yes, run:

  1. memsqlctl env

Does it say include the line user:memsql? If yes, run:

  1. memsqlctl create-node --port 3306.

And we’ll see if you run into the same error. Thanks!
