Error on server console: JAVA SSL EXCEPTION.

Novell NetWare 5.1 Support Pack 3

DirXML NDS to NDS Driver


Error on server console:  JAVA SSL EXCEPTION.


Java version 1.17 is installed with SP3.  Patch Java to 1.22.  After applying Java 1.22 add the following line to the JAVA.CFG file:


This is a JVM option you can set. The verify option goes thropugh and makes sure that the java classes are valid and will error out if they are not. What happened was that in Java 1.1.7 came out verifying the classes one way. Then 1.2.2 was released by SUN and that verifies the classes a different way but since the classes were written to be backwards compatible they failed on the verify. This option was changed on the Windows platform by default but not on the NetWare platform because of the delay in releasing the 1.2.2 JVM on NetWare. So anytime someone upgrades from 1.1.7 to 1.2.2 they will see this issue but it is not an actual problem it is just a parameter that needs to be set.
