Hi @VinodSJadhav ,

The SQL30081N error indicates there is a problem with the network communication between your client and the DB2 server. Error code "420" in the context of SSL usually points to an issue related to SSL communication, which could be caused by several factors such as SSL certificate problems, incorrect SSL configuration, or network issues like firewalls or proxy settings.

1. If you are using an older version of the IBM DB2 drivers, consider updating to the latest version as it might contain fixes for SSL-related issues.
2. Ensure that the SSL configuration on both the client and the DB2 server is correct. This includes the SSL certificate, the key database, and the stash file.
3. Make sure that there are no network issues such as firewalls, proxies, or any other security appliances that could be blocking or inspecting SSL traffic.
4. Confirm that the SSL certificate has not expired and is valid. Also, check that the client trusts the certificate chain leading up to the certificate.
