Post Deployment Actions for Modifying FIPS Mode

As of firmware release 3.2.4, Oracle ILOM provides a configurable property for FIPS level 1 compliance. By default, this property is shipped disabled. Upon modifying the operational status of FIPS compliance in Oracle ILOM, all user-defined configurations properties are reset to their factory default settings. To avoid the loss of user-defined configuration settings in Oracle ILOM, FIPS compliance should be modified prior to configuring any other Oracle ILOM setting. In the event FIPS compliance must be modified post deployment of Oracle ILOM's configuration, see the following instructions to avoid the loss of user-defined settings.

Note -  Oracle uses cryptographic algorithms in compliance with the FIPS 140-2 security standards for protecting system sensitive or valuable data.
