IssueFIPS is now supported in RSA Security Analytics  However, an additional step is required when enabling FIPS on an ESA appliance in order for the procedure to be successful.
ResolutionPrior to upgrading to Security Analytics from a previous 10.4.x version, users are instructed to disable FIPS on any ESA appliances by executing the script below.
[root@ESA ~]# /etc/puppet/scripts/esabsafeoff

Therefore, after upgrading the ESA appliance to version, the script below must be executed on the appliance in order to re-enable FIPS.
[root@ESA ~]# /etc/puppet/scripts/esabsafeon

If you are unsure of any of the steps above or experience any issues, contact RSA Support and quote this article number for further assistance.
NotesTo determine whether or not FIPS is enabled in your environment, refer to the RSA Security Analytics 10.4 User Guide.
