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.
CA Chorus Software Manager 6.0 build 135
A web filter policy was found blocking incoming traffic to the LPAR that CSM was running on.
Removal of the web filter policy corrected the failure condition.
