An error is displayed while registering a new CCS Unix agent to a Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) enabled Information Server: Error in validating the socket
Error in validating the socket
bv-Control for UNIX now supports the FIPS compliant version of openSSL. If you use the FIPS compliant version of openSSL, the bv-Control for UNIX agents must also use the FIPS compliant encryption algorithm.
After bv-Control for Unix is set to use the FIPS mode, it does not support the combination of some agents using the old encryption standard and some agents using the new FIPS encryption standard. The UNIX agent install packages, located on the product disk, use the old encryption standard and do not support the FIPS compliant encryption algorithm.
You must use a new bv-Control for UNIX agent install package that supports the FIPS compliant encryption algorithm.
