mySQL Database Connection Fault after Reboot

Hi all,

I have an odd problem I can’t figure out.
I’m running Ignition 8.1.10 and mySQL v8.0 on the same Win 10 PC using the MariaDB driver.
Every time the PC is rebooted, the database connection faults. I’ve checked the MYSQL service and it’s running in automatic.

I’ve found that just the act of opening mySQL Workbench and logging in restores the database connection and all is good, but I have no idea why this is happening.

Any ideas would be appreciated!
