There is no such database. It is homo_sapiens_core_34_35g. You can (if 
you have mysql client, or you can install mysql browser, see mysql.com):
mysql -h ensembldb.ensembl.org -u anonymous
show databases;
to see all active databases.
Also ensembl-dev is the list where you should send these questions to.
Good luck.
