Error message when attempting to create a new mysql connection

edited March 13 in Datasets

 We have been trying to connect a new MySQL database read replica to domo (a process we have done before successfully), but for some reason we get the following error message every time: There was a problem creating your account. Please try again.


We are sure we are using the right host, username, and password, as these have been verified by our database architect. He is sure this is the right information, what does this error message mean? Does it point to an error on our side or is this an internal domo issue? More importantly, what can we do to fix it?  Thanks.
