I huddled with my DB guy and he says that there is nothing wrong with the
database.  He could connect to it with the username and password.

The other thing I did in the upgrade was move mysql-connector-java-5.1.40
to 5.1.44, putting the mysql jar file in the lib subdir in 2.2.1.

What's wrong?  How to fix?  I have the diagnostic file available.

My system: Redhat 7.4, java-1.8.0-openjdk- installed via rpm.
