VMware Aria Operations deactivates SSLv2, SSLv3, TLSv1, and TLSv1.1 by default. You must deactivate weak protocols on all load balancers before you put the system into production.


  1. Run the grep SSLProtocol /usr/lib/vmware-vcopssuite/utilities/conf/vcops-apache.conf | grep -v '#' command from the command prompt to verify that SSLv2, SSLv3, TLSv1, and TLSv1.1 are deactivated.
    If the protocols are deactivated, the command returns the following output: SSLProtocol All -SSLv2 -SSLv3 -TLSv1 -TLSv1.1.
  2. To restart the Apache2 server, run the systemctl restart httpd command from the command prompt.
