Unable to connect to DB2 database server over sec port using SSL from windows ODBC DSN client

I am trying to connect DB2 database servers over secure port using SSL from system ODBC DSN client machine. But I am getting below error

Error: SQL30081N A communication error has been detected. Communication protocol
being used: "SSL". Communication API being used: "SOCKETS". Location where
the error was detected: "". Communication function detecting the error:
"sqlccSSLSocketSetup". Protocol specific error code(s): "420", "*", "*".

Could you please help me in this situation to fix the issue.

The steps I have done:

1) Created Keystore .kdb file along with stash file .sth file.
2) Added the certificate to Keystore and it is having below 3 certificates inside of it.
Root cert
Intermediate certificate
personal certificate
3) ODBC configurations - please refer the attachment for settings used
4) db2cli.ini file parameters:


5) db2dsdriver.cgf parameters:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?>
<database host="" name="TEST" port="0000">
<parameter name="SecurityTransportMode" value="SSL"/>
<parameter name="SSLClientKeyStoredb" value="fullpath\test.kdb"/>
<parameter name="SSLClientKeystash" value="fullpath\test.sth"/>

<dsn alias="testalias" host="" name="TEST" port="0000"/>
