SSL error while configuring cloudera manager database


Hi there,


I am doing an installation and when I use using mysql, I got the following error. I checked in the database the ssl is already disabled, any other way to work around?


 Establishing SSL connection without server's identity verification is not recommended. According to MySQL 5.5.45+, 5.6.26+ and 5.7.6+ requirements SSL connection must be established by default if explicit option isn't set. For compliance with existing applications not using SSL the verifyServerCertificate property is set to 'false'. You need either to explicitly disable SSL by setting useSSL=false, or set useSSL=true and provide truststore for server certificate verification.






Hi Team,


I am also facing the same issues and wanted to know if we have an solution to this?

What is the MySQL J connector version you are using? What are CM and CDH versions?


Based on the documentation:


It mentions:

Cloudera recommends using only version 5.1 of the JDBC driver.


Thanks and hope this helps,
