    Unable to connect to data source [MySQL]

      Hi All !


      I can't resolve the issue of Tableau Server connection to Mysql server.

      I have the Tableau Server and Desktop. I configured Desktop, established connection to mysql server, draw the views, published them to Tableau Server.

      From Server side I can see them on the Content page. But, when I go to the Tableau View view page I can't see the chart and see



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

      The drivers required to connect to the data source are not installed.

      Unable to connect to the server "ip". Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested database.



      Want to say that I have no problems with mysql server and I can connect to it from ubuntu terminal and from Tableau Desktop.

      And one more thing, Tableau Server is located on another server different from mysql or Tableau Desktop.
