2. Operational issues

2.1 Report from DMSU

ARGUS/WMS Certificate Chain Mixups

  • Affecting several sites, where WMS is unable to make SSL connection to ARGUS.
  • With all probability this is a combination of using curl from the SL6 distribution, which in built with NSS SSL rather than OpenSSL and, as such, does not really support proxy certificates, and a bug in Java, hopefully fixed since Java 7 Update 60.
