“Error when reading form SSL socket connection” when accessing DRAC5

we still have bunch of servers with DRAC5 cards. after upgrade to java 8u31 java-based kvm console stopped working. it gives: “error when reading from SSL socket connection.” message box during startup and that’s it.

i’ve done some googling and found this mentioning similar error and oracle’s changelog confirming that SSLv3 is disabled by default.

solution? i’ve edited C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_31\lib\security\java.security and commented out this line:

jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3

long live java on the backend. desktop java… better not.
