I get the following error in the baseline_engine log: 

com.nimsoft.nimbus.NimClientSession( Connection has been shutdown: SSLHandshakeException: No appropriate protocol (protocol is disabled or cipher suites are inappropriate)

When deploying ppm to a hub configured in SSL ONLY mode, baseline_engine and prediction_engine won’t start because of the SSL setting.



- This problem has been resolved in certain environments by executing the following procedure:

1.       Navigate to nimsoft/jre/<jre.version>/lib/security on the hub where you have SSL ONLY Mode enabled, and where you deployed ppm. It should look something like C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\jre\jre7\lib\security.

2.       In that directory, open up the file in a text editor.

3.       Under the heading: 
# Algorithm restrictions for Secure Socket Layer/Transport Layer Security # (SSL/TLS) processing
Check if you see an entry that looks like the following: 
jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3, which does not have a '#' in front of it (thus being uncommented).

If that’s the case, comment the mentioned line (adding a ‘#’ as the first character) and restart the system.

After this change, the line should be read as:
