Can you please check the PATH where the MySQL connection driver is present to verify if it has proper read permission?

Also please check if you can put the mysql-connection-java*.jar in some common location like: (instead of "/home/centos") else other users might not be able to read the jar file.

Example:

# cd $METRON_HOME/lib
# wget https://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/Connector-J/mysql-connector-java-5.1.45.tar.gz
# tar xf mysql-connector-java-5.1.41.tar.gz

Or you can try installing the mysql-connector-java driver to some common location from where every user has atleast read access to it like:

Example:

# ls -l /usr/local/bin/mysql-connector-java-5.1.41-bin.jar 
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 992808 Jan 15 02:08 /usr/local/bin/mysql-connector-java-5.1.41-bin.jar

@Jay Kumar SenSharma : Thanks for the response. It solved the issue. I moved the lib jar to /usr/local/bin and gave ownership and permission to the metron user account. Now it worked.
