Hello,

We have a new install of Storage Manager and any attempts to login are met with: This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.

The login never completes and options to either exit out or continue from the dialog box with the error end up closing the storage manager program.

I have compared this server's policies with another working server running the Storage manager without any issues. The policies that we've seen so far for anything related to FIPS or cryptography and even those we've researched so far within the security policy seem to match between the two servers.

Both servers are Win2008r2 - running on VMware ESX and were created from the same base images.

Please let me know if you've seen this before and if so what recommendations you could make.

Thanks!

Here's the error in full:

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.
