HowTo - Enabling Contact Center Solutions and Business Reporter in a FIPS environment


Article ID: 52179 - Last Review: November 8, 2018

INFORMATION

If your Enterprise Server and Remote servers reside in a FIPS environment, Contact Center Solutions and Business Reporter requires a configuration change be made in your Window .NET Framework files to enable Contact Center Solutions and Business Reporter servers to communicate with each other and with client computers within the FIPS environment. Contact Center Solutions and Business Reporter are not FIPS-compliant; this configuration enables Contact Center Solutions and Business Reporter servers to function within a FIPS environment. This configuring only needs to be made once for an installation or upgrade as future upgrades will keep this setting.

NOTE:  If you update your version of .NET Framework, you make the configuration change again.
