The documentation states that the Portal User Console can be accessed through HTTPS, but it does not detail what encryption protocol version is used (SSL 3.0, TLS, 1.1 or TLS 1.2). Does Portal support TLS 1.2?
Updated Security Scans call for disabling TLS 1.0 so many users are seeking support for TLS 1.2
BMC has provided a patch which will allow the Portal Appserver/Webserver/RSMs to use TLS 1.2 to communicate.
To install the patch against the Appserver/Webserver/RSMs, follow the installation instructions in the readme file contained in the patch file:
If newly installed RSMs with TLSv1.2 are subsequently added follow these steps at the time:
2) Install the 013 patch manually on RSM.
b) On RSM Server navigate to this location "%RSM_HOME%\RSM211\tools\jdk\bin" and open command prompt at this location.
c)And execute the following command
Now 013 patch is installed manually.
3) Make this following changes in RSM
b) Edit %RSM_HOME%\RSM211\server\rsm\conf\properties\rsm\rsm.properties
Add this. (If not exists)
#Following will be used when the HTTP Solution is used to monitor the URL. Default is TLS. Do not change it
#unless you read the documentation or BMC Support asks to do it.
4) Restart the RSM and you should see the newly added RSM in Portal.
5) If patch status for the RSM is not updated to 2.11.00.000.013, follow this steps.
i.e. sqlplus pe/pe@bmcpds
b) Execute the following statement:-
update agent set patchstatus='UPGRADED' where patchversion='2.11.00.000.013';
c)Now you should able to see patch status updated to 2.11.00.000.013 patch in Portal UI.
