Hi,
I am getting the following error. This is from an automated process that runs at 0600 in the morning , as a windows scheduled task. Around 10 tasks are run in the same process.
They all run ok (the other tasks don't access the MySQL database). If I then re-run the same process using the windows scheduler, it runs ok. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

This is running on Kettle 2.5.1 and MySQL 5.0.41

Error occured while trying to connect to the database
Error connecting to database: (using class org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver)
Communications link failure due to underlying exception:
