SSL/TLS Handshake Failed

  • Polycom VVX 601
  • Skype for Business Online (Office 365)
  • S/W 5.6.0.17325

 

Notice yesterday the message "SSL/TLS Handshake Failed".  Tried a couple of reboots and that didn't solve it.

 

Any thoughts on the cause?

 

In my own trial and error...

 

I have now disabled device updates on the Skype for Business Online Management Shell / Configuration File on the handset to allow phones to run on a different version.  Then installed S/W 5.9.0.9373.  Phones now seem fine.

 

So my presumption is...

  1. Microsoft done an update on the O365 servers that now require a different TLS version.
  2. But Microsoft have forgotten that Polycom S/W 5.6.0.17325 doesn't support it.
  3. And Microsoft haven't pushed out device updates first

 

When installing S/W manually, my choice of 5.9.0.9373 was from the version qualified in Microsoft's list of certified IP phones https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/skypeforbusiness/certification/devices-ip-phones#conference-phones.

But then if 5.9.0.9373 is the version Microsoft list, why is 5.6.0.17325 being pushed out as the  qualified version for Skype for Business Online?
