FIPS Compliance in SQL Monitor


This article will provide a workaround for FIPS compliance.

You may have seen the error

"This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms."

in your SQL Monitor logs.


As SQL Monitor is not FIPS compliant, you can use this workaround to help.

You will need to edit the SQL Monitor BaseMonitor config file, RedGate.Response.Engine.Alerting.Base.Service.exe.config, which is located by default in C:\Program Files\Red Gate\SQL Monitor\BaseMonitor\.


<enforceFIPSPolicy enabled="false"/>

between the <runtime> tags, and then restart the SQL Monitor BaseMonitor.
