KB0003 - Slow Endpoints and TLS Settings

Be advised that if the TLS settings on a Windows Server are modified, this can result in a severe performance degradation

Symptom #1

In the Event Viewer (System Log) there are errors with source Schannel indicating that a "fatal error that occurred while creating a TLS client credential"

Symptom #2

The PSU logs show the error "[ERR] An unhandled exception has occurred while executing the request."

Symptom #3

Endpoints do not respond or are very extremely slow to respond

Root Cause

TLS settings were changed (possibly by or related to Microsoft patching)


Check the TLS settings and ensure they are still configured correctly. See screenshot below for an example of how the TLS 1.2 protocol should be set.
