FIPS password hashing

Hi ,
I was wondering whether anyone knows what the implications are of enabling FIPS password hashing in a Windows domain? Has anyone enabled this before, if so what impact did it have in your domain?

We currently run in a Windows 2003 domain functional level, where as our forest is in 2000 mode.

Hi, here is a whole list of what will happen if you enable FIPS.

I looked down this road, however, if you applications require standard logins (like SQL) then it may not work for you.  You should only implement this when the application and external communications require it.  I believe that I have in enabled on one server right now, however the server only has a single account that logs into it and a vendor specific application that communicates for CC processing over a VPN.
