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.
- Browse to the Java Security File (C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.x.x\lib\security)
- Edit the java.security file. (May need to open Notepad as Admin first)
- 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.
