I have installed Veeam v7 in our infrastructure. Previously, we had disabled SSLv3 on our vCenter via editing the tomcat-server.xml file and one other file (I can't remember which at the moment) to disable SSLv3 on ports 443 and 9443. Veeam is working right now, but always fails on hotadd and fails over to NBD. I see in the logs a 'HttpConnectionPool-000000' error where it says Connect failed to <cs p:0000000001277a20, TCP:vcenterhostname:443> SSLException. However, backups do succeed carefully. I was wondering:
I read that Veeam does not yet support the VDDK 5.5.4, which has support for TLS1. So, it uses SSLv3 by default. However, if we had disabled SSLv3 on port 443 on vCenter, will this cause hotadd to fail? Why would hotadd fail but the backup proceed, if it in fact cannot connect to vcenter? It does say it eventually connects to vcenter, is it failing over to port 80 or something?
