How to confirm version of Java needed for Brocade 5100 UI?

 

Hi, I've taken over the mngt of a older Brocade 5100 Fibre Switch.  If I'm posting this is the wrong forum, please let me know so we can move it to the correct forum. 

 

We have access to the CLI via SSH/PuTTY.  However we want to get access to the GUI to be able to gather more information from there as well.  

 

What version of Java do I need to manage this from a Windows 10 desktop?  Or how do I know?  

 

This is the version and firmware

Getting the following error when using the latest Mozilla Firefox browser in a Windows 2012 Server VM and JRE 7u76 x64.  

 

"The version of Java plugin needed to run the application is not installed.  The page from where the plugin can be downloaded will be opened in a new window.  If not, please click here.  Download correct Java version."  

 

 

Were going to try the following below to see if this works or not: 

 

  1. Install Java 7u55 32bit (even if on a x64 box)

 

 

 

  1. Edit the Java.Security file and comment out (put a # sign in front) of (***MAKE A BACKUP OF THE FILE FIRST***)

 

jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms=MD2, RSA keySize < 1024

 

use notepad++ or any other text editor that allows proper formatting display

 

 

 

  1. Do this for both java.security files if you have both 32 and 64 bit java installed. The file(s) are found at:

 

C:\Program Files (x86) \Java\jre7\lib\security

 

C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\lib\security

 

 

 

  1. Open up control panel and lower the java security bar to medium

 

  1. Add the URLS of your brocades into the Exception Site List (make sure this is identical to what you type into your browser or have bookmarked)

 

 

 

That should do it. Works for us on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 boxes.

 

Doesn't seem to work with firefox so you MUST use IE. We tried IE9 and IE 11 and they both worked.

 

 

 

Also after the inital webtools screen pops up, it goes away, be patient after about a minute you should get the login box to pop up. Be patient!

 

 

 

Also it appears that the Java Exception list is user profile specific, because another admin logged into the server and he went to control panel - java - security tab and he didn't have the exceptions listed that I had already put in under my windows user profile.
