IssueYou install ECAT UI on a machine that is not hosting the ECAT Console server.
When attempting to connect to the Console Server, but get an un-handled exception error below:
2016-01-18 11:12:24.336 1 System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.InvalidOperationException: This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.

CauseThe machine is FIPS enabled.
At the present there is no support for ECAT UI to run on FIPS enabled systems.
ResolutionThis issue is being investigated by the Engineering team in order to provide a permanent resolution in a future release.
FIPS support is on the road-map for future versions of Netwitness Endpoint.
