Idrac 7 firmware 2.10.10.10 (build 49) 256-bit disables Virtual Console

Issue: updated firmware from 1.57.57 to 2.10.10.10.  tried using the 256-bit or higher SSL Encryption but Virtual Console no longer opens with Java 8 Update 51.

Receive an Application Error which details some handshake_failure.

reducing SSL back to 128 or 168 bit opens the Virtual Console fine.

any advice?

Please try this --

Get the latest JRE and setup for 256 bit encryption

 

1) Go to Oracle site to download JRE

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre8-downloads-2133155.html

 

2) Select Java SE Runtime Environment 8u66

3) Install the software

4) Download the unlimited strength JCE policy files.

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jce8-download-2133166.html

 

5) Un-compress and extract the downloaded file.

local_policy.jar                  Unlimited strength local policy file

US_export_policy.jar         Unlimited strength US export policy file

 

6) Backup the original policy files

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_66\lib\security\local_policy.jar

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_66\lib\security\US_export_policy.jar

 

Rename to

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_66\lib\security\local_policy_org.jar

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_66\lib\security\US_export_policy_org.jar

 

7)  Install (copy) the unlimited strength policy JAR files.

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_66\lib\security\local_policy.jar

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_66\lib\security\US_export_policy.jar

 

Now you should be able to launch vConsole with Java Plugin and SSL Encryption set at 256 bit or higher.
