An exception of type System.InvalidOperationException was thrown. Additional exception information: This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.
System.InvalidOperationException: This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.
I checked out few blogs, but was not able to resolve the issue.
These were the blogs/links I referred to:
this pointed me to this KB article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/911722. The KB article talks about adding a section to your web.config, but in my case, the central admin site is also still not created so there is no web.config.
I also referred to another link which suggested to disable the FIPS compliance related Local security policy, but in my case it was already disabled.
I will troubleshoot this further and keep updating this post.
Update Oct 11th,2010.
