A required license for running on this FIPS enabled system could not be found.

Symptoms:

Venafi Services stop with error
"Exception message: Cannot start Venafi Client Rest, error A required license for running on this FIPS enabled system could not be found."

Cause:

FIPS compliance has been enabled either locally or via GPO.

Resolution:

  • FIPS compliance is only currently allowed with Windows 2008 R2 FIPS-validated servers. 
  • If you are not expecting FIPS to be enabled you will need to disable FIPS on the server or speak with your Domain Admins to have this removed from your GPO.
  • If want FIPS mode enabled, reach out to Customer Service and request a ZA license. This will be a License that will need to be entered into your registry. Once the license is in place your services should start up normally.
