A.5.5. Rollback Failure for Non-Transactional Tables

If you receive the following message when trying to perform a ROLLBACK, it means that one or more of the tables you used in the transaction do not support transactions:

Warning: Some non-transactional changed tables couldn't be rolled back

These non-transactional tables are not affected by the ROLLBACK statement.

If you were not deliberately mixing transactional and non-transactional tables within the transaction, the most likely cause for this message is that a table you thought was transactional actually is not. This can happen if you try to create a table using a transactional storage engine that is not supported by your mysqld server (or that was disabled with a startup option). If mysqld doesn't support a storage engine, it instead creates the table as a MyISAM table, which is non-transactional.

You can check the storage engine for a table by using either of these statements:

SHOW TABLE STATUS LIKE 'tbl_name';
SHOW CREATE TABLE tbl_name;

See Section 13.5.4.24, “SHOW TABLE STATUS Syntax”, and Section 13.5.4.7, “SHOW CREATE TABLE Syntax”.

You can check which storage engines your mysqld server supports by using this statement:

SHOW ENGINES;

You can also use the following statement, and check the value of the variable that is associated with the storage engine in which you are interested:

SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'have_%';

For example, to determine whether the InnoDB storage engine is available, check the value of the have_innodb variable.

See Section 13.5.4.11, “SHOW ENGINES Syntax”, and Section 13.5.4.27, “SHOW VARIABLES Syntax”.
