Hello,
I was wondering how I can get ALM installed on a MS SQL DB with TLS1.2 installed?

IS it even possible?

Thanks,
Homerj

Hello HomerJ,
As far as TLS1.2, it only is officially supported with ALM12.21 patch 4 (whenever that comes out as per the latests from HPE), ALM12.53, and ALM14. In order to use that currently you would need to be using ALM12.53 version and according to HP KM document KM02307969 (https://softwaresupport.hpe.com/group/softwaresupport/search-result/-/facetsearch/document/KM02307969?lang=en&cc=us&hpappid=202392_SSO_PRO_HPE you will need an HP passport to be able to view this document as it is a closed system) you would need to add the following during the installation of ALM:

''During the installation, add CryptoProtocolVersion=TLSv1.2 to the JDBC connection string.

For example:

jdbc:hp:sqlserver://:;EncryptionMethod=SSL;CryptoProtocolVersion=TLSv1.2 ''

I hope this helps,
Dan
