HCI -> ERP Connection via Reverse Proxy: SSL Handshake Exception

Former Member
0 Kudos


we are trying to esablish a connection from our HCI tenant to a local ERP system via a reverse proxy. The HCI IP-range is white.listed on the reverse proxy.

Additionally the full certificate chain of the reverse proxy is imported into the deployed system.jks.keystore.

When doing a connection test within Eclipse (context menu of tenant) to the local ERP system we are getting the following error:

"Error during processing request on Operations server.


[GENERIC][GENERIC][EXCEPTION] Remote host closed connection during handshake"

The server certificate itself is a wildcard certificate. Are these accepted by HCI? Do you have any other idea what could cause this issue?

Thank you for your Support.

Hello Florian,

The error says - Remote Host Closed the Connection during the Handshake - which to me tells that HCI is accepting the SSL Certificate loaded into its Kyestore but the issue seems to be with the reverse proxy that seems to be terminating the connection.

Do you have Client Authentication enabled as a mandatory in your Reverse Proxy - If yes, that could be the case as when you do a Test Connection - I dont think HCI uses Client Authentication but rather uses a 1 Way SSL ( not 100% sure though! )
