Netezza Database connection error

I'm attempting to connect to a Netezza server, and gettting an error. I've tried both the tNetezzaInput component, and the tJDBCInput connection, both generate the same error.
The error: when I run a simple job to retrieve data: "A connection error has occurred: Invalid - database name" (full text below)
I know that the underlying connection is good, as it is possible to create a new connection, then do "Import Schema" using both Netezza and JDBC options. The Import Schema correctly retreives various tables.
Any ideas?
Exception in component tNetezzaInput_2

Hello
Can you connect to Netezza in metadata?
Best regards

Re: Netezza Database connection error

I am now able to successfully run a simple job to extract and load tables in netezza. I'm not sure what the solution was, I re-created the job from scratch and it now works, in both tNetezzaInput/Output and ODBC components.
