2391607 - 500 Proxy Error: Error during SSL Handshake with remote server using Apache as reverse proxy


  • Instead of displaying the SAP Analytics Cloud (BOC) login page, the reverse proxy returns an error: 500 Proxy Error: Error during SSL Handshake with remote server
  • You may see the error: 

    Your connection is not private

    Attackers might be trying to steal your information from (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID

  • Opening the logs for Apache in <Installation_PATH>/logs/error.log shows the following information

AH01084: pass request body failed to X.X.X.X:8080 (your_proxy_server)
AH00898: Error during SSL Handshake with remote server returned by /sap/fpa/ui/tenants/XXX
AH01097: pass request body failed to X.X.X.X:8080 (your_proxy_server) from IP_From_Client_Computer ()




  • SAP Analytics Cloud
  • Apache as Reverse Proxy

Reproducing the Issue

  • Install and configure Apache as reverse proxy to SAP Analytics Cloud
  • Configure Apache httpd.conf to indicate the need to access Internet via an internal proxy server:

ProxyRemote http://your_internal_proxy:8080


The certificate for your SAP Analytics Cloud (BOC) tenant was rejected by the Apache server. 



Modify the configuration file httpd.conf of your Apache Reverse proxy as indicated in the Product documentation:

SSLProxyEngine on
SSLProxyCheckPeerCN Off
SSLProxyCheckPeerName Off
