Error description

  • When attempting to export tests from the Test Factory of
    Rational Integration Tester (RIT) to Rational Quality Manager
    (RQM) you
    see the following error message:
    
    [CRRIT2650E] Unable to connect to IBM Rational Quality Manager:
    Failed to negotiate SSL connection
    
    This problem happens with RQM versions 4.0.7 or newer that are
    using the built-in Tomcat web server.
    
    Note that the Rational Integration Tester Agent (RIT-Agent) can
    successfully connect to RQM and execute tests.
