Outbound authentication failure: [security error]


An attempt to authenticate the agent to a remote server (typically another agent) failed.


The error message contains a detailed explanation for the failure, which may include reasons like: the remote server provided an invalid certificate; or the server identity did not match the list of principals that the agent has been configured to allow; or the server rejected the agent’s certificate.


The fix will vary depending on the specific nature of the failure. Look to the detailed error message for guidance, or contact CloudBees support for further assistance.
