This is the error text that I get for the aggregator only. I have something similar  with the Data Collectors.

Dx NetOps Performance Management 21.2


21.2.11 has added JMX SSL and encrypting password in jmx.password.


We have updated the DA to enable JMX SSL.  We also added a to DC to configure DC https and JMX SSL at same time.


During the 21.2.11 upgrade the DA will secure JMX SSL if DA is running HTTPS.

Additional Information

For the securing of JMX to be complete, all Data Aggregators and Data Collectors need to be configured utilizing the script on that server.
