Problem description 1

The File Server is displayed as not connect on the Phoenix Management Console. While again registering the Phoenix File Server agent, the following error is displayed.

Error registering Phoenix Server. Error: The session is invalid. (#10000006e)(Error code : PHOENIX110)



Network issues.


[2018-05-21 06:57:41,831] [ERROR] Error validating server certificate: [('SSL routines', 'SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE', 'certificate verify failed')]

[2018-05-21 06:57:41,846] [ERROR] Error <class 'inSyncLib.inSyncError.SyncError'>:The session is invalid. (#10000006e). Traceback -Traceback (most recent call last):

Perform the following checks to resolve this issue:

  1. Telnet the at port 443.
  2. Open the browser and click Secure > Certificate and check whether the certificate is issued by USERTrust RSA or third party to *


  3. Review the firewall settings on the server in which Phoenix Agent is installed.
    The traffic to * must be excluded from the proxy or firewall server.
  4. Review the TCP packet using the Microsoft Network Monitoring tool.
  5. Make sure that the date and time of the server match the current time in that Timezone.

  6. Verify for any "Web Filter" or "SSL decryption" in the environment.

  7. For Linux, we can run the following commands to ensure certificate is valid and connection is established.
    echo | openssl s_client -connect -brief
    echo | openssl s_client -connect -brief

    Unsuccessful connection will throw an error while successful should give the output as follows:
    Protocol version: TLSv1.2
    Ciphersuite: ECDHE-RSA-AES128-XXX-SHA256
    Peer certificate: CN = *
    Hash used: SHA512
    Supported Elliptic Curve Point Formats: uncompressed:ansiX962_compressed_prime:ansiX962_compressed_char2
    Server Temp Key: ECDH, P-256, 256 bits

   Druva recommends to white list "*" for port 443 on the firewall.
