Disabling SSLv3 on vCenter Single Sign-On port 7444 (2131310)

  • 1 Ratings


This article provides information on disabling SSLv3 on the vCenter Single Sign-On port 7444.
Note: When you upgrade to vCenter Server 6.0 Update 1, the SSLv3 protocol is enabled on the vCenter Single Sign-On port 7444 by default.


 Note: Perform these steps after the upgrade to vCenter Server 6.0 Update 1 is completed on the Platform Service Controller (PSC) machine and all the nodes that are registered to the PSC.
To disable SSLv3 on the vCenter Single Sign-On port 7444:
  1. Connect to the PSC machine.

  2. Open the server.xml file for the vCenter Single Sign-On.

    - Windows default location: C:\ProgramData\VMware\vCenterServer\runtime\VMwareSTSService\conf\

    - vCenter Server Appliance default location: /usr/lib/vmware-sso/vmware-sts/conf/

  3. Create a backup of the file.

  4. Find this line:

    '<Connector SSLEnabled="true"'

  5. Append this line at the end of the line in step 4.



    '<Connector SSLEnabled="true"''sslEnabledProtocols="TLSv1,TLSv1.1,TLSv1.2"'

  6. Save the file.

  7. Restart the VMware Security Token Service by running these commands:

    service-control --stop vmware-stsd
    service-control --start vmware-stsd

    Alternatively, you can restart the PSC machine.
