Upgraded WFA 4.0 to 4.2 receiving SOAP and REST SSL errors


After upgrading WFA and migrating the database to a new server we aren't able to do rest or soap over powershell. Error is related to SSL.




Error received when attempting SOAP


New-WebServiceProxy : The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel.



Error received when attempting REST


Exception calling "GetResponse" with "0" argument(s): "The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel."



Please contact customer support and submit a ticket.





Had no idea NetApp supported WFA under the standard case creation process.


Hi @ninja  is the issue what you are facing solved ?

I am also having similar error when trying to connect to WFA 4.2   ....   with WFA 4.1  its works fine .. 


is it possible for your to post the code which you are using to connect to WFA using REST over powershell ?   . 






I don't have a fix yet. My NetApp case is still open. I will post the fix once I have it.




you need to enable TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 on your windows server and also enable the same protocol on WFA .  I tried it and its works fine for me .


try downloading   "IISCrypto.exe "   from  https://www.nartac.com/Products/IISCrypto    ..  by this is pretty easy to enable it . 


then enable the same protocol in WFA  by 






Then restart your windows server .. 


use   below code in your script ensure that you are using TLS 1.2  . 



[Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [Net.SecurityProtocolType]::Tls12
