Cause

The issue occurs when the SSLv3 is disabled in the SFCB server.

Resolution

To resolve the issue:
 
  1. Open the /opt/vmware/etc/sfcb/sfcb.cfg file using a text editor.
  2. Locate line containing the key sslCiphers.

    For example:

    sslCiphers: ALL:!ADH:!LOW:!EXP:!MD5:!RC4-SHA:!DES-CBC3-SHA:!SSLv3:@STRENGTH

  3. Remove :!SSLv3 from the entry located in Step # 2.

    For example:

    sslCiphers: ALL:!ADH:!LOW:!EXP:!MD5:!RC4-SHA:!DES-CBC3-SHA:@STRENGTH

  4. Restart the SFCB service by running the command:

    service vami-sfcb restart
