vRealize Operations Manager disables SSLv2 and SSLv3 by default. You must disable 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 and SSLv3 are disabled.

    If the protocols are disabled, the command returns the following output: SSLProtocol All -SSLv2 -SSLv3

  2. To also disable the TLS 1.0 protocol, run the sed -i "/^[^#]*SSLProtocol/ c\SSLProtocol All -SSLv2 -SSLv3 -TLSv1" /usr/lib/vmware-vcopssuite/utilities/conf/vcops-apache.conf command from the command prompt.
  3. To restart the Apache2 server, run the /etc/init.d/apache2 restart command from the command prompt.
