Hello.  We have a discrepency on the order of steps we need to enable FIPS in a HA setup for Netscaler MPX9700.  These are running version 11.1.

From the Articles, such as https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/netscaler/12-1/ssl/fips/configure-fips-ha.html and https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/netscaler/12/getting-started-with-netscaler/configure-fips-first-time.html, it reads as though you start with the HSM/FIPS module and then the HA portion of the GUI.  We are planning to use a WildCard for the certificate on the FIPS module and the URL's provided to users.

However; from research a co-worker insists that the HA portion through the GUI needs to be setup first, and then do the HSM/FIPS portion.

Any clarification from experience is appreciated.
