Enabling FIPS secure cryptography mode

Ater attempting to enable FIPS cryptography on Synergy, for both interconnects we get a message stating that ICM will be rebooted to enable FIPS. Resolution,as part of the message, states that 10 minutes of server connectivity downtime should be planned.

Will this reboots be orchestrated, like during the ICM firmware upgrades, or concurrent, causing actual connectivity downtime for the servers?fips-pic1.jpg

Re: Enabling FIPS secure cryptography mode

Hello,

The reboots of VC modules during enabling FIPS secure cryptography mode is not orchestrated. It will do the reboots of both modules at the same time. Hence plan a downtime before making this change.

Thank you.
