MS SQL database TLSv1 error.

Can't reach database server or port

I keep getting the following error.  

SQLState - 08S01 The driver could not establish a secure connection to SQL Server by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption. Error: "Server chose TLSv1, but that protocol version is not enabled or not supported by the client.". ClientConnectionId:adaa0274-9e6c-48a4-97bd-4e0652dc80bd


I can telnet into the server.  Also, I tried to add the JDBC 7.0 driver.

It is a new install upgraded to 7.10.

Hello @stephen_ralston ,
With 7.1.0, we added system properties that restrict the HTTP clients to use TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2 only as TLSv1 is getting phased out and is considered insecure.

If you still want to enable it, use this guide to edit the JVM arguments:


Find the one that says:


-Djdk.tls.server.protocols=TLSv1.1,TLSv1.2 -Djdk.tls.client.protocols=TLSv1.1,TLSv1.2


and prepend "TLSv1" to both lists (with a comma as well). Restart Confluence and it should word. But again, consider migrating to a newer version that is more secure.
