MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual Including MySQL NDB Cluster 7.3-7.4 Reference Guide

17.4.1.7 Replication of CREATE TABLE ... SELECT Statements

MySQL applies these rules when CREATE TABLE ... SELECT statements are replicated:

MySQL 5.6 does not allow a CREATE TABLE ... SELECT statement to make any changes in tables other than the table that is created by the statement. This is a change in behavior from previous versions of MySQL, which permitted these statements to do so. This means that, when using statement-based replication between a MySQL 5.6 or later replica and a source running a previous version of MySQL, a CREATE TABLE ... SELECT statement causing changes in other tables on the source fails on the replica, causing replication to stop. To keep this from happening, you should use row-based replication, rewrite the offending statement before running it on the source, or upgrade the source to MySQL 5.6 (or later). (If you choose to upgrade the source, keep in mind that such a CREATE TABLE ... SELECT statement will fail following the upgrade unless it is rewritten to remove any side effects on other tables.) This is not an issue when using row-based replication, because the statement is logged as a CREATE TABLE statement with any changes to table data logged as row-insert events, rather than as the entire CREATE TABLE ... SELECT.
