Question concerning FIPS on/off



Ramawatar wrote in to ask about FIPS on/off on behalf of a customer:




Hi Team,


One of my customers is asking if we do FIPS on/off and VC mode clear, is the VC configuration will be cleared:


From the customer:


Can you check what is the meaning of this message flashing on OA screen ?


FIPS on/off can’t be achieved till VC mode is cleared.


And in HP doc also it says it bring setting to factory default.




Fred was able to answer with a link:




Hello Ramawatar,


Yes, the VC domain will be deleted when VC enters or exits FIPS mode. The VC UG http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c04562188 has more details.
