iDRAC6 Virtual Console Java – (Connection Failed)

Here is a quick fix to connect to an iDrac Console session using Java, if you are getting the “Connection Failed” error. You simply need to re-enable SSLv3 support in Java temporarily.

  1. Browse to the Java Security File (C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.x.x\lib\security)
  2. Edit the java.security file. (May need to open Notepad as Admin first)
  3. Comment out the following line “jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3“.

That should allow you to connect without any errors. For security purposes, you should uncomment that file line when you are finished to disable SSLv3 again.
