[MySQL][ODBC 5.3(a) Driver]Can't connect to MySQL server

Hi everyone,

I have difficulty connecting to MySQL server from Tableau Server.

The error message is:

"[MySQL][ODBC 5.3(a) Driver]Can't connect to MySQL server on XYZ. Unable to connect to the MySQL server "xyz". Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested database

I have installed MySQL ODBC 5.3 Driver from tarball distribution in Ubuntu OS, and whitelisted the IP address of Tableau server in MySQL server.

What could be the possible causes for this? And is there any way that I check the ODBC connector was properly installed?

Any suggestion/comments are much appreciated!

Thanks again!
