Specified historical sink ‘DB’ does not exist
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Specified historical sink ‘DB’ does not exist.
My Gateway is running 8.0.5.
I’m running a MySQL database on version 8.0.18
I’ve tried connecting with Connector/J version 8.0.18, and also tried using version 5.1.48.
Both continue to cause the error.
I’ve tried reading this thread: Specified historical sink ‘DB’ does not exist
But didn’t get anywhere with it.
I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling both Ignition and MySQL a couple times to no avail.
I also have to include this optional parameter or the database connection Faults and throws a separate error.
Cannot create PoolableConnectionFactory (Unknown initial character set index ‘255’ received from server. Initial client character set can be forced via the ‘characterEncoding’ property.)
Disclaimer: I am using this gateway to complete my Core certification. Though, this issue seems like it is more of a “something isn’t functioning as expected” instead of a “I didn’t set it up right”.
Am I actually just doing something wrong, or have I just broken it at this point?
