Error message in Compass when connecting to Cluster

Hello,

 I am trying to connect to my Database Cluster, but I get the following error: 
 "getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND cluster0-shard-00-00-tehz2.mongodb.net"
 Please see screenshot below. Any ideas how to fix this? 

Thanks in Advance,
Rajnesh

Are you able to ping your cluster?
May be the hostname is not correct
Please check again
Alternately you can try fill in connection fields individually tab

Thank you for such a prompt reply, Ramachandra.
I’m not sure how to ping the cluster since I’m new to MongoDb.
I’ll read the Documentation and try it out in a day or two.
Thanks again.

Regards,
Rajnesh

The cluster cluster0-tehz2 does not seem to be setup correctly.

We usually get the info about the replica set nodes forming the cluster as in:
