Steps to check ICM settings

Step 1: Run T-code RZ10 and check if the parameter icm/HTTPS/client_sni_enabled and ssl/client_sni_enabled is set to True.

Step 2: If the above parameter is not enabled as TRUE, Run T-code: RZ11 and then enter the parameter icm/HTTPS/client_sni_enabled.

Please make the change to the parameter by changing the value directly in the profile.

Step 3: Go to Change mode and apply the current value as TRUE and save the parameter.

Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 for ssl/client_sni_enabled as well.
