SYMPTOMS

The following policy is enabled on a Windows Server 2008-based computer or on a Windows Vista SP1-based computer:
System cryptography: Use FIPS compliant algorithms for encryption, hashing and signing
When you open the Failover Cluster Management window on this computer to perform the "Validate a Configuration" task, the validation process fails. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
An error occurred while performing validation. Testing will be cancelled. This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista Failover Cluster Validation uses a non-FIPS compliant algorithm. Therefore, the validation fails after the "System cryptography: Use FIPS compliant algorithms for encryption, hashing and signing" policy is enabled.
