Error description

  • Error messages seen in the dsmerror.log of the client :
    ANS1579E GSKit function gsk_secure_soc_init failed with 401:
    GSK_ERROR_BAD_DATE
    and
    ANS1592E (RC-362) Failed to initialize SSL protocol.
    
    This is seen for nodes using client to client communications in
    proxy configurations especially for GUI interfaces which will
    display errors.
    For example, the node validation in the configuration tab of the
    Spectrum Protect for virtual Environments - Data Protection for
    VMware GUI will display the message :
    ANS1017E (RC-50) Session rejected: TCP/IP connection failure
    
    The reason is that the client certificate used for client to
    client SSL communications is expired and was not automatically
    renewed.
    Communications to the Spectrum Protect server are not affected
    as different certificate is used and therefore restore
    operations or backups (manual or scheduled) are not affected as
    long there is no client to client communication involved.
    
    Products affected:
    IBM Spectrum Protect Backup-Archive Client version 7.1 and 8.1
    on Linux x86 and Microsoft Windows x64 platform.
    IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments: Data Protection
    for VMware version 7.1 and 8.1 on Microsoft Windows x64 and
    Linux x86_64 platforms.
    IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments: Data Protection
    for Microsoft Hyper-V version 7.1 and 8.1 on
    Microsoft Windows x64 platform.
    
    If you are using Backup-Archive Client 7.1 and 8.1,
    refer to APAR IT26545
    
    Note 1: The Backup-Archive Client is a prerequisite to using the
    Data Protection for VMware version 7.1.
    In Data Protection for VMware environments, the Backup-Archive
    Client is also known as the data mover.
    
    Note 2: The Backup-Archive Client is a prerequisite to using the
    Data Protection for Microsoft Hyper-V versions 7.1 till 8.1.2.
    In Data Protection for  Microsoft Hyper-V environments,
    the Backup-Archive Client is also known as the data mover.
    
    If you are using Data Protection for VMware 8.1,
    refer to APAR IT27761
    
    If you are using Data Protection for Microsoft Hyper-V
    8.1.4-8.1.6, refer to APAR IT26846
