Patching is definitely need to otherwise disable it - there are tools such as iiscrypto (https://www.nartac.com/Products/IISCrypto/) for Windows. But in specific this is rather old vulnerability and OpenSSL has even newer one already, you need to have the vendor provided patch for those security holes. It will addressed the alert flagged to from scanner etc.

I suspect your server is ESX based on the stated hostname so do check out their security adversaries. For this case in specific, see VMware recommendation and assess if relevant http://www.vmware.com/security/advisories/VMSA-2014-0006.html

Go for latest adversary and do patch in staging so as not to break the apps & client comms
