Why am I getting the following SSL error when adding Splunk slave to master? : "editTracker failed, reason ="Unable to connect to license master"

New Member

Trying to add a Splunk instance as a slave to another master is failing with the following error message:

 "Bad Request - editTracker failed, reason ="Unable to connect to license master=https://x.x.x.x:8089 Error connecting: error:1408F10B:SSL routine:SSL3_GET_RECORD:wrong version number" 

This instance can reach the master (and port 8089). I'm not sure where to look for SSL version(s) between the instances. I've tried making changes on the slave's server.conf but it didn't appear to help. Any assistance is appreciated.

How did you validate that you can connect to the license master?
