    Default Unable to get database metadata from this database connection

    Hi all
    I am trying to run a transformation but it is giving me this error. I have checked all the connections, they are perfectly fine.
    I don't understand what this error is about.

    Thanks in advance !

    Default

    That's not enough information.

    I guess you lost the database connection at some point in time. The log lines you show represent a symptom, not the cause of the problem.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.
