Problem

Previously, I had been successful in acquiring products, product updates, and product maintenance, but now the process fails with the error:

Error encountered while accessing: https://supportservices.ca.com/support

CA CSM cannot connect to CA Support Online via HTTPS. Check your internet connection settings on the Software Acquisition page, on the Settings tab. 

Further diagnostics reveal:

javax.net.ssl.SSLPeerUnverifiedException: peer not authenticated problem.

Environment:  

CA Chorus Software Manager 6.0 build 135

Cause: 

A web filter policy was found blocking incoming traffic to the LPAR that CSM was running on

Resolution:

Removal of the web filter policy corrected the failure condition.
