an exception of type system.invalidoperationexception was thrown. additional exceptoin information: this implementation is not part of the windows platform fips validated cryptographic algorithms

the issue is during the configuration wizard, i don't have a web.config file in the inetpub directory yet --

it fails on step 3 of the config wizard, before the web app gets provisioned

I guess you'll need to disable the "Local Security Setting System cryptography: Use FIPS compliant algorithms for encryption, hashing, and signing" policy in Windows.

you can follow the instructions below to check if it is enabled or disabled and disable if necessary - you mentioned group policy, do you know if this policy is sent down?


Go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative tools > Local Security Policy. The Group Policy dialog appears.
Under the "Local Policies" heading, select "Security Options" and look for the entry, "System cryptography: Use FIPS compliant algorithms for encryption, hashing, and signing."
If entry this is enabled, disable it.
