    TLS 1.2 and Umbraco failing to connect to SQL Server


    I've just tried using IISCrypto to change the TLS settings to 1.2 only and I received the 'Umbraco could not connect to the database...' error. I switched back to 1.0 - which, of course, causes certificate errors - and all works again.

    I am on an Server 2008R2 and SQL Server 2008R2 setup. Has anyone go any experience of this issue and any advice with regards to upping TLS and how you go about it?

    Kind regards, Steve

    HI Angus,

    Thanks for pointing this out. I will give it a try next week and see what happens. We have been dropping the following code into our MVC apps so the penny should have dropped. I'll see if this works for the SQL Server connection, however.

       const SslProtocols _Tls12 = (SslProtocols)0x00000C00;
       const SecurityProtocolType Tls12 = (SecurityProtocolType)_Tls12;
       ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = Tls12;

    Hi Angus,

    It was more a database matter as a KB hadn't been applied. Thanks for the info nonetheless.
