Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Due to a change at the OS level, user started getting SSL certificate warnings while accessing DBaaS Monitor URL.

The same certificate worked fine before.

The only way the user could now access the DBaaS Monitor screen was to follow the below process:

https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/paas/database-dbaas-cloud/csdbi/access-dbaas-monitor.html

Using the “Open DBaaS Monitor Console” Menu Item to Access Oracle DBaaS Monitor

If your browser displays a warning that your connection is not secure or not private, use the browser’s advanced option to continue.

You get this warning because Database Cloud Service database deployments use a self-signed certificate to provide HTTPS (secure HTTP) connectivity, and such certificates are considered suspicious by many web browsers.


But, earlier the user did not require to follow the above process everytime while accessing the DBaaS Monitor.

Changes

OS level changes were done during this time including kernel update and dbaastools update.
