After installing the Tibco EMS agent and configuring it for SSL connectivity to the EMS Server, it fails with an error similar to:

1/16/17 09:24:01 AM EDT [ERROR] [com.wily.soaextension.tibcoems.agent.TibcoEMSConnectionManager] Unable to connect EMS server on xxxx.xxx.com:39443
1/16/17 09:24:01 AM EDT [ERROR] [com.wily.soaextension.tibcoems.agent.TibcoEMSConnectionManager] Ensure that an EMS Server exists and running on xxxx.xxx.com:39443, and connecting user has 'VIEW-ALL' permission.

Putting the log level to DEBUG on the agent adds this additional message:
1/16/17 09:24:01 AM EDT [DEBUG] [com.wily.soaextension.tibcoems.agent.TibcoEMSConnectionManager] com.tibco.tibjms.admin.TibjmsAdminException: Unable to connect to server. Root cause:
javax.jms.JMSSecurityException: Failed to connect via SSL to [ssl://xxxx.xxx.com:39443]: No appropriate protocol (protocol is disabled or cipher suites are inappropriate)


Tibco EMS agent -- all supported releases.

This can be caused by being unable to match protocols between the agent and the server.


 To resolve the problem, clear the agent protocol field so that the agent can try to match across all protocols.

 To do this:

 1) Open the agent file TibcoEMSMonitor.properties

 2) Comment out the agent property




 3) Restart the agent

Additional Information:

If the problem continues, reproduce the problem with debug logging active, and contact CA Technical Support  for further investigation.
