Disabled Adapters in NIST 800-131a compliance mode
An Adapter will be disabled as a result of NIST 800-131a compliance when adapters are configured in "off" mode using noncompliant data, such as noncompliant certificates and cipher strength, and are switched to strict mode.
If a non-NIST 800-131a compliant system certificate, CA certificate, or cipher strength are used when in strict mode, the server adapter is disabled and messages are logged into the log file for the adapter. You must re-configure the non-NIST 800-131a compliant adapter by using a NIST 800-131a compliance certificate and cipher strength to enable the adapter.
If an adapter is disabled as a result of non-NIST 800-131a compliant certificate or cipher strength, a message appears on the Adapter details page, Not NIST 800-131a compliant. If you receive an error, you must re-configure the adapter for NIST 800-131a compliance.
If a client adapter is configured with a non-NIST 800-131a compliance system certificate, trusted certificate, CA certificate, or cipher strength in strict mode, the communication with the server will fail. If you receive a failure, you must re-configure the client adapter for NIST 800-131a compliance.
