DRAC 5 "Error when reading from SSL socket connection"?

Hello,

I have a PowerEdge 1950 BIOS 2.7.0 with DRAC 5 Firmware Version 1.65 (12.08.16).

When trying to connect to "Console" I am receiving the error  "Error when reading from SSL socket connection".

I did comment the line "#   jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3, RC4, MD5withRSA, DH keySize < 768" at java.security file but still the same.

I am using WIndows 10 with latest FireFox.

Thanks in advanced,

Asaf

I found these edits were required in order to connect to a DRAC 5 card using Chrome and Java 8, rev. 91:

In Control Panel > Java > Security:

1. Check "Enable java content in the browser"

2. Set security level to "High"

3. Add each DRAC IP to exception list

In C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_91\lib\security\java.security:

Remove MD5:

jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms=MD2, RSA keySize < 1024

Remove SSLv3, RC4, and MD5withRSA:

jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=DH keySize < 768

Agag70,

The first thing I would check on is that the browser itself is actually 32bit. This is because Console Redirection and Virtual Media only supports 32bit Web browsers. Using a 64bit Web browsers may generate unexpected results like this. Also, I would suggest updating the BIOS and BMC on the server to current.

After that then try the console again. 

Let me know what you see.

Hi Chris,

Both Java and Firefox are 32bit and my server is already updated to the latest versions.

I no longer speak about java n terms of versions but in terms of attempts...
