When upgrading or installing WebCenter 22.03 and using a SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2014, it can happen that WebCenter refuses to connect to the DB. This happens because WebCenter 22.03 only supports TLS v1.2 or higher out of the box.
During the installation of WebCenter, the DB script will fail with an error message similar to:
TLS version miss match
SEVERE: failed to connect to DB
com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerException: The driver could not establish a secure connection to SQL Server by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption. Error: "The server selected protocol version TLS10 is not accepted by client preferences [TLS12]". ClientConnectionId:dc09e17b-b47d-4cd6-9a68-1669d8458958
