Error description

  • After migrating WebSphere Application Server V6.1 to WebSphere
    Application Server  7.0, on dmgr start,SystemOut.log shows;
    CWPKI0022E: SSL HANDSHAKE FAILURE:  A signer with SubjectDN
    "CN=xxx.xx.net, OU=aaaaa, O=bbbbb, L=ccccc,
    ST=ccccc, C=US" was sent from target host:port
    "10.00.00.00:636".
    The signer may need to be added to local trust store
    "D:/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Dmgr01/config/cells/APP-e01
    /trust.p12" located in SSL configuration alias "security.xml".
    The extended error message from the SSL handshake exception is:
    "PKIX path validation failed:
    java.security.cert.CertPathValidatorException: The revocation
    status of
    the certificate with subject (CN=xxx.xx.net, OU=aaaaa,
    O=bbbbb, L=ccccc, ST=ccccc, C=US ) could not be determined."
    
    In the security.xml file, trustmanager has 2 entries:
    trustManager="TrustManager_2 TrustManager_1"
    

Local fix

  • Once migration completes then in security.xml for v7.0
    change  the trustManager="TrustManager_2 TrustManager_1" to
    to trustManager="TrustManager_1"
    ...
    The trustManager will be different based on your server
    configuration. So the names may not match exactly. However you
    will see two names with the space seperating them.

    If the old release does not support PKIX, after migration,
    during server startup,an SSL Handshake exception is thrown.
    The solution was to preserve the old trust manager settings in
    the new release.

    settings in the new release.
