I've installed HPC 2008 R2 and the cluster is working fine. However, when local security setting "System cryptography: Use FIPS compliant algorithms for ..." was enabled, HPC Scheduler was unable to start.
- Wonder if this is due to failure when connecting to DB server? Verified DB Server doesn't have FIPS enabled.
- Is there any other setting to tweak HPC server to bypass FIPS while enabling the "System cryptography: Use FIPS..." above?
Tks for your advise.
