Oracle WebCenter Content: Imaging - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After checking "Use JSSE SSL" on the WebLogic Server (WLS) Admin server to enable SSL Access to LDAP, the Imaging Node Manager fails and the below error occurs:

Error from IPM Diagnostic log:

CERTIFICATE_UNKNOWN alert was received from <server> - The peer has an unspecified issue with the certificate. SSL debug tracing should be enabled on the peer to determine what the issue is.

In an attempt to implement SSL access to LDAP in the SSL Advanced section in the provider specific tab of the LDAP provider on the WLS Admin server, the WebLogic Server Console can access Groups and Users from the LDAP, however, Managed Servers are not able to be started. When the "Use JSSE SSL" checkbox is then turned off, SSL LDAP access fails because LDAP is using SHA256 with RSA security certificate, and JRE 1.7. If both flags are turned on, everything works but SSL access to LDAP fails.


Node Manager configuration set for SSL communication to Admin Server, but not JSSE SSL.

Enable the Use JSSE SSL checkbox for AdminServer; Enable LDAP connectivity for AdminServer user authentication.
