drac5 / 6 with latest java 1.8.60

new java, new headaches. but my colleague figured a way how to get the ip kvm working again with the latest java.

here are his findings:

ingredients: windows 8.1, j2se 1.8.60, firefox 41 or chrome 45.0.2454.99:

  • go to the Control panel > java
  • in the General tab: Settings > Delete files – mark all the check boxes and click ok; then in the Temporary File Settings make sure that [x] Keep temp files on my PC is checked
  • in the Security tab click on the Edit Site List and add https://10.1.2.3/ – the address of your drac
  • click ok
  • edit C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_60\lib\security\java.security and comment out in it line constaining jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=
  • try accessing the server console using DRAC’s web interface in chrome or ff

a great find indeed!

be warned that this change will potentially decrese the security of encryption/network communication of all of the java applications you might use on your computer.
