Some probes cannot start if connection between hub and robot is via only TLS.

Issue:

Connection between hub and robot will be only via TLS if [Cipher Type] (on v7.8 Hub AC UI Reference > Advanced > SSL or v7.8 Hub IM GUI Reference > General Tab > Hub Advanced Settings > SSL Advanced Settings) is "AES128-SHA256".

 

However, some probes (example: cdm, processes, nas) cannot start with this setting. 

Environment:
cdm, processes, ntevl, logmon, rsp, nas, and so on.
Cause:

Currently these probes do not support TLS.

Resolution:

User needs to set the [Cipher Type] to be "AES128-SHA256:RC4-SHA" for enabling SSL if those probes are necessary.
