Hi Pablo,
Which iDRAC version are you using? There were changes around SSL/TLS with recent iDRAC releases.

Subject: [Linux-PowerEdge] VMCLI - SSLv3 Handshake


I've started to encounter the following error while trying to run vmcli against several iDRACs.

Error: SSL Connection error
139702341482120:error:14077410:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert handshake failure:s23_clnt.c:744:

The iDRAC ssl config seems correct (enforcing tls)

Server public key is 1024 bit
Secure Renegotiation IS supported
Compression: NONE
Expansion: NONE
    Protocol  : TLSv1.2
    Cipher    : DHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384

I've tried with auto-negotiate on the idrac side, no luck so far.

As far as I understand, it seems that vmcli is not capable of understanding TLS and fails the connection to the iDRAC.

My vmcli version

Name        : srvadmin-idrac-vmcli
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 8.3.0
Release     : 1908.9058.el6

[]# vmcli -v
iDRAC Virtual Media Command Line Interface. Version:

Is ther any workaround for this? Am I doing something wrong on my end?
