I have an Oracle Database 12.1 server running on Oracle Linux 6.
Secure (TLS) connections were working fine until I decided to update the underlying operating system (
yum update) and reboot the server. A total of 62 packages were updated (yum update log) including the kernel and OpenSSL.
Now, secure connections, from the JDBC clients and from SQL*Plus fails with handshake_failure or ORA-28860.
I have a verbose TLSv1.2 log from my JDBC client but I can't figure out what is wrong with the TLS connection.
listener.ora do not contain
I am sure that nothing was changed or updated on the client (either JDBC or SQL*Plus). Few minutes before the upgrade/reboot, there was no problem establishing the TLS connection.
The server runs Oracle 188.8.131.52. The TLS connection issue occurs with all tested clients which previously succeeded in establishing a secure connection:
- ojdbc8.jar 184.108.40.206
- ojdbc7.jar 220.127.116.11
- SQL*Plus 18.104.22.168.0.
The SQL*Plus trace file contains an ORA-28862 ("peer closed the connection") which may be more specific than the previous ORA-28860. I will try to get the same trace file on the server side.
