    *                      admin console is not working because    *
    *                      the incorrect TLS setting is not        *

    ****************************************************************
    The IBM Cloud and other machines may not be configured to
    support old TLS releases.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Update the security.xml to use the SSL_TLSv2 protocol during
    migration.  This protocol also supports the old SSL_TLS
    protcol as well.  Also update the ssl.client.props file.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 9.0.0.7 and 8.5.5.14.  Please refer to the Recommended
