We are currently trying to enable SSL for WACS to get BI-Administrators-Cockpit to work. We only see “a network error occurred” at the moment. But we don’t manage to get it running properly. We tried the following two variants:
We used the pfx file that we created based on the same certificate we use for tomcat. But when we start the WACS server we get the following error message:
Failed to load keystore type PKCS12 with path C:\Windows\xxx.pfx due to Algorithm not allowable in FIPS140 mode: PBE/PKCS12/SHA1/RC2/CBC/40
WACS does not even start.
We created our own JKS keystore and WACS started properly. But when we try to connect to the RESTful URL: “https://<servername>:<port>/biprws “ we get the following error message in Chrome: “ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH”.
We also tried to convert the existing .p12 keystore (BO / BW SSO) to JKS but we get the same error.
Does anybody have an idea on how to enable SSL for WACS? And yes we basically followed the notes mentioned here: https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2391613
