Remote syslog over TLS from ProCurve 5400zl series switch

I am having an issue finding documentation to resolve a setup issue I am having - trying to get remote syslog over TLS working from a ProCurve 5400zl switch.

I use the command: logging <ip address> tls <port>

but end up with log entries on the switch:

I 12/02/16 10:41:53 04331 mgr: syslog: Information logging started on the SYSLOG
server <ip address> over TLS protocol
W 12/02/16 10:47:51 00472 ssl: SSL Syslog TLS failed: no certificate present

The docs for that feature don't mention certificate requirements, so I tried adding the root CA and intermediate certs of the syslog receiver as ta-profiles, but that didn't help. I also tried with a self signed cert on the syslog receiver end, and added that cert through a ta-profile, but that didn't resolve the issue either.

I have an open support ticket, but so far, I don't think the tech understands the issue, so I'm reaching out to the community as well.

Thanks!
