Symptoms

When the SSL profile fails to initialize, it causes the SSL enter pass-through mode instead of rejecting traffic.

Impact

SSL enters pass-through mode instead of rejecting traffic. As a side effect, ConfigSync might fail, as the communication channel does not establish because of a hung SSL connection.

Conditions

SSL profile fails to initialize, for example, due to failure to load cert/key files.

Workaround

Make sure cert/key is available and has the proper grant access mode.

Fix Information

When the SSL profile fails to initialize, it now causes the SSL to reject traffic correctly.
