    Connecting to mysql server from Tableau Server

    Jose Cabrera Zuniga

      I am able to connect to a mysql database from Tableau Desktop. However if I try to do that from Tableau Server using the Edit Connection option and entering the same data used with the desktop version then I get the next error:


      Could not connect to server

      The drivers necessary to connect to the database server 'hsc-ctscdev.health.unm.edu' are not properly installed on Tableau Server. Visit http://www.tableau.com/drivers to download driver setup files.

      [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified


      At the desktop version I used the MySQL option for the "Add a Connection" command and all worked perfectly. Any ideas about how to solve this problem?


      We upgraded both apps to 10.1.*
