SSL error "elliptic curve routines" seen in opscenterd.log


A SSL error seen caused by an out of date openssl package


The following error is seen in the opscenterd.log

2015-02-16 11:17:45+0000 [McCluster] Thrift pool connection to <CassandraNode @0x19d4b00> failed
Traceback (most recent call last):
Failure: thrift.transport.TTransport.TTransportException: Connection closed ([Failure instance: Traceback (failure with no frames): <class 'OpenSSL.SSL.Error'>: [('elliptic curve routines', 'EC_GROUP_new_by_curve_name', 'unknown group'), ('SSL r
outines', 'SSL3_GET_KEY_EXCHANGE', 'EC lib')]


The openssl package on the opscenter machine needed updating


A simple package manager upgrade will solve the problem. (i.e. sudo yum upgrade)
