In that case it's most likely ciphers were disabled with the PTFs on your
side. I've had a quite few customers have this issue with PTFs in the last
month or two.

And it's not always just that simple. One for example had a cipher list on
their server with some obsolete ciphers that were not in my customer's list
(my client was making requests to their server). But, at least 8 others
matched. It still errored out until I added that one obsolete cipher back
into my list, which I didn't want to do because I didn't want to override
the system settings for SSL. Why? If I forget I'll have the opposite
problem with new ciphers that are added.

SSL on the IBM i has always irked me for reasons like that, and for expired
CAs that cause all SSL to fail whether related to the communications or not.

Yup - did that Brad. they all appear OK.

This started happening after we applied a couple of group PTFs so i'm
wondering if that is part of the problem.

Well, if it is anything like DCM, even an expired CA that has nothing to
do
with your communications can sometimes cause problems. You may want to
check out CAs as well as client and server certs.

Thanks - that has saved me a lot of trouble as it showed that the certs
are apparently good through 2028!

Time to involve someone who knows what the heck they are doing!

Thanks again.

I know _where_ they are. What I'm trying to determine is how to look

the content of them to see the expiry date. I _think_ expiry is the

but the log messages are not explicit enough to be sure. Don;t want to
renew a bunch of certs only to find that was not the problem.

If you are using openssl certs. Look and see if you have an update for
ca-certifcates-mozilla available in the ACS open source package
management.

Can you share the config details for the application link to use the
main cert - I could not find how to configure that.

Connections to the php server? Or outbound connections. If it's to the
server, at least in our case, we are using the main store. In DCM we
have
an application defined, and in the apache setup we use the SSLAppName
directive to point to the certificate. If it's a connection elsewhere,
use
openssl to look at the cert. Something like this:



openssl s_client -connect ibmsystemsmag.com:443
