Question:

Get the following error when trying to connect to a MySQL database using the jdbc_response probe:

Could not connect to jdbc:mysql://<ip address>/mysql Caught exception loading driver for connection test : java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

Answer:
Based on the error the jdbc driver for MySQL was not installed on the probe machine, or the path was not defined on the 3rd line of the New Connection dialog in the IM probe configuration.
