How to enable SSL for WACS

Hi experts

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:

1) PKCS12:

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.

2) JKS

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:

SAP BI 4.2 SP4 Patch 2

Thank you very much
