UCMDB Support Tip: J2EE_Websphere_Connections_by_JMX cannot connect to the server

After configuring websphere protocol credentials and key stores in proper resource folder on the probe, check credential throws the following error:

com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.ConnectorException: ADMC0016E: Could not create SOAP Connector to connect to host [IP] at port [port].


It means that the job is not able to connect to the target websphere node. Exception:

<message>[CDATA&colon; Error opening socket: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find


In order to address such discrepancy it is suggested to update remoteJVMArgs parameter of J2EE WebSphere Connections by JMX job and J2EE WebSphere by Shell or JMX job.

Should be added following argument: - Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=..\\runtime\\probeManager\\discoveryResources\\j2ee\\websphere\\UCMDB_store.jks

To perform Websphere AS discovery by JMX user should have at least MONITOR administrative role 

One should modify the discoveryProbe.properties file from the probe and set the appilog.collectors.websphere.combine.certificates=false. Restart the probe and run the job again.
