Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' when accessing local storage



I installed the 3.0 beta, when trying to use visualization or access the local storage, I get the following error:

          Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)




We’re looking into it. So far we haven’t been able to reproduce the error locally. If you can tell us the OS you’re running and other apps you have running as well, we should be able to narrow it down. Thanks.



It turns out that TDA is trying to connect to the Toad for Cloud Databases hub which is running as a windows service. It fails to connect b/c the TCD hub has a password. If I shut down the TCD hub the connection proceeds.



Running HUB instance’s side-by-side right now is not supported, but is something that we will definitely be looking into, it is very much a desired feature.
