Hi Jakub,

This error is a generic one but actually means what it says. It's a communication failure.

Are you able to ping and telnet the JDBC URL connection from the source server? Are you behind a proxy in your environment? I recommend to check these steps and check the connection again.

Is this just happening to stash or app as well?



Yes, I can connect to the database and other apps work with it. The problem is stash-only... This is the full error...
