Goal

On a SES 11g installation, it is needed to disable SSLv2 and enable SSLv3 instead for the Node Manager process as  WLS does not support SSLv2. ( http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E21764_01/web.1111/e13707/ssl.htm#i1200848 )

There is a java option to enable SSLv3, but you cannot set java options because SES uses its own tool (jar file) to start all the processes including nodemanager via the utility "searchctl".
