U00003531 UCUDB: Error while checking data source (e.g. code conversion or driver problem, see log file).
U00003594 UCUDB Ret: '3531' opcode: 'OPEN' SQL Stmnt: ''

U00003590 UCUDB - DB error: '72000', 'ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied', '1017', 'java.sql.SQLException'
U00032031 Error when connecting to Database

Cause

Automation Engine cannot connect to the database due to misconfiguration

Environment

Release : 12.1, 12.2, 12.3

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

Automation Engine could not connect to the database as ORA-01017 (Oracle error) states.

In most of the cases the issue is with one or a combination of the following:

1. ucsRV.INI Database configuration string (Database name, password, character set, syntax, etc.)
2. Configuration on the server side depending on the database type. For example, for Oracle Databases, verify ORACLE_SID and LD_LIBRARY_PATH. 
3. Verify there is no issue with network between the Automation Engine and database servers. 

Verify all the items listed above. If all the configuration is correct, open a case with Broadcom Support.
