Getting handshake exception error when configuring URL monitor
URL: https://xyz.unix.dvn:443/nnm/, host:xyz.unix.dvn, port: 443, UsingProxy: false, isHTTPS(SSL): true, javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Received fatal alert: handshake_failure, currentRetry: 0
I tried to configure URL monitor, but getting handshake error. I have imported all the related certificates in both the tools. I have even tried enabling winlet but nothing works.
It would be great if anyone can help me on this.
What version of SiteScope are you using? Older versions do not support TLS v1.1 & 1.2 protocols, and it's quite common for web servers to not allow older protocols (e.g. TLS1.0 and SSL versions), which would cause a handshake failure. The openssl tool could be useful here if you can run it on your SiteScope server*:
openssl s_client -connect xyz.unix.dvn:443
This will check if you can establish a connection from the SiteScope server to the remote site. Then you can specify a particular protocol by apending one of the following to the openssl command:
* openssl is usually available on Linux by default, but not on Windows. If it's a VM, then it might be present in VM Ware tools - search for openssl.exe.
