    Unable to connect to the Data Source

    Pradeep D



      I have created a Tableau report using data from different DB's. I have one excel sheet, three tables from Netteza DB and one table from Google Analytics (GA). When i published the report i am getting error saying

      " Unable to connect to the ODBC Data Source. Check that the necessary drivers are installed and that the connection properties are valid.

      [MySQL][ODBC 5.3(w) Driver]Can't connect to MySQL server on 'aarp-mac.c8ywldxhnqz2.us-east-1.rds.amazonaws.com' (10060)

      Unable to connect to the server "aarp-mac.c8ywldxhnqz2.us-east-1.rds.amazonaws.com". Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested database."


      We have installed a MySQL ODBC driver on to Tableau Server desktop. Even after that we are getting the same error.


      Any help is appreciated.
