Crypto Error Unable to perform the requested algorithm. If FIPS restrictions are enabled, please select a FIPS compliant algorithm.

Hi One and all,

Hope you are doing well and good 🙂

I am caught in a serious issue here. Let me explain the issue.

We are trying to perfom SNMP walk from the utility available in the location volume:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\snmpwalk.exe  from some of the pollers to the devices managed by them(SNMP v3 mainly). But however we are unable to perform the walk and are getting this error


"Crypto Error Unable to perform the requested algorithm. If FIPS restrictions are enabled, please select a FIPS compliant algorithm".

This happens only from few pollers and few do not show up this error and perform the walk successfully. We checked the FIPS restrictions from the server end and found the FIPS is disabled. What could be the reason for this error being shown by few pollers and few do not? We checked the FIPS and other securitysettings, however its the same. Can someone please explain how can we overcome this? Apart from walk, the error comes into play even when we are clicking on the real time process explorer from the console.

Need SNMP walk to poll for the MIBS on the new bluecoat devices and create a custom poller to poll for them. Its urgent and I am stuck 😞

Has anyone faced this issues earlier? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Abhishek
