We have mysql enterprise running and i just installed mysql enterprise backup 3.8.2 on RHEL 6.4 64 bit. I am trying to execute the mysqlbackup and it is giving the below error:
[root@d01-aadb02 meb-3.8.2-rhel4-x86-64bit]# mysqlbackup -u backup-p --backup_dir=/home/ashah/dumps backup
MySQL Enterprise Backup version 3.8.2 [2013/06/18]
Copyright (c) 2003, 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.

mysqlbackup: INFO: Starting with following command line ...
mysqlbackup -u backup -pxxxxxxxxxxxxxx --backup_dir=/home/ashah/dumps backup

130730 23:32:33 mysqlbackup: WARNING: Can not establish connection to mysql server.
Connection open fails with error "Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)"
mysqlbackup: ERROR: Connection initialization error.

mysqlbackup failed with errors!


However, i am able to connect to database using the same credentials for user backup. I am not sure why this is happening. Is there a way to resolve thiss?

I have also provided the necessary grants to root for mysqlbackup.

Any help is appreciated
