Exactly.. It does not exist at localhost (

The master backend can not be set to connect to mysql on localhost/
if you have slaves or remote frontends. This is because, while the master
backend will work fine, the slaves/frontends will initially be told to
connect to (or whatever your master backend ip is) and then
update their record from the master telling each that the server is at
localhost. The next time they try to connect they fail because the master is
not located at localhost.
The backend can only be set to localhost if everything
mysql/backend/frontend are all on the same system.
