Did you find a resolution to this SSL Handshake problem ?
I am getting this same error for my application.
This shows up on the IIS Webserver which is the front face to the Websphere App server of my app. On the application logs of websphere, it says SocketTimeout exception for that session. And the websphere admin team and the IIS web server admins have both said that they think it is the application issue.
This error occurs only on Saturdays when there is very little load on the server. Twice between about 4:30am and 5:30am; and again a two/three times between 8:30 and 10:00am. I have requested for what other app/processes are running/initiated/scheduled on those servers during these times of Saturday.
Ours is definetly not a hardware issue. Because we do not have any issue during business days or peak time.
Pls let me know if you could get a resolution for this, and found anything on this.
