Hi @pradeepvaddirbc 


This is not a QLik product related issue, have you tried to connect to the DB from another client?

I found this article, hope it helps:

Pradeep, Nadia was correct in her post, were you able to sort out the root cause?  If so, please consider posting what it was, and you can then mark that as the solution as well using the Accept as Solution button after you post things to let others know what it was.  

Based upon the screenshot, it would appear things were wanting a secure connection, and I am guessing there was a missing client certificate etc. that was needed to be installed on the machine from which you were trying to make the connnection...
