That error says that the DB Connect app is asking Splunkd to create something, and it's saying it can't.

1 are you logged in as a user with the rights to do that?
2 is it running into some weird network problem like a transparent proxy that accidentally breaks name resolution?
3 did you upgrade the app and/or splunkd recently and maybe need to clear your browser cache?
4 is it trying and timing out?
a is your browser really far from the server?
b is your server under resourced and/or running windows?
