In the crystal structure of the title compound C15H27N3O4, the mol­ecule is located on a twofold axis and the asymmetric unit contains one half-mol­ecule, with one N and one C atom lying on the rotation axis. The pyridine ring is the hydrogen-bond acceptor, while two hydroxyl O atoms act as hydrogen-bond donors in intra­molecular O—H⋯N and intermolecular O—H⋯N and O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, thereby forming a closed hydrogen-bonded cage
