Resolved Issue


NetApp filers can be configured for both SSLv3 and TLS connections. As a result of recent security changes in Java, the agent will no longer, by default, attempt SSLv3 connections when monitoring these systems. If a secure connection is required, it is strongly recommended that TLS be enabled for the filer. See

To enable SSLv3 connections to the filer, edit the file "jre/lib/security/" from the agent manager hosting the agent monitoring the filer, remove or comment out the line jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3, and restart the agent manager.
