@v-qiuyu-msft ,


Thank you for your response. I am already on version 2.73.5586.1101.




Also I am trying all steps as mentioned in link. I used to connect to databricks few months back and after update it stopped working. I am suspecting bug in new version.


I am new to community, and I hope this post is in correct section.
