Dcx.sap.com Status
Is dcx.sap.com down right now?
It's not just you! dcx.sap.com is down.

Why does this matter?

Because Chrome (seems to) automatically change old-school links using http://dcx.sap.com to https://dcx.sap.com, and they are all timing out.

It's 2021, https should work :)

Or... everyone could stop posting links to dcx, and link to the SAP Help Portal instead :)

Technically, I don't think it's broken, AFAIK it has not supported HTTPS before - but yes, that's not any better.

Ha, ha... I just gave up Firefox in favor of Edge, and now you want me to go back to supporting three browsers ? :)

> I don't think it's broken

My Inner Developer agrees, security sucks, we shouldn't have to spend so much time building moats and drawbridges, but until that perfect day arrives...

...it is absolutely absurd that any sap.com website doesn't support https.

Yes, fully agreed.

So http://sqlasupport.sap.com/readme/index.html should be adapted, as well.

See the "Update" to the question above... HSTS is proof the tech oligarchs are going crazy :)

I have had discussions with the people responsible for the DCX environment. We are working to add HTTPS support but the timing is not yet determined (but hopefully a reasonable timeframe). I will monitor and as soon as I am aware that HTTPS has been enabled, I will update this thread.
