I have inherited a Splunk Enterprise and FIPS is on for about half of the environment. My experience has always been negative with FIPS compliance so I am interested in disabling it. Preliminary checks show it is on for my search heads and LM, but not for the Indexer Cluster, CM or DS. I am also reasonably certain it is not on for most if not all of my forwarders. I had to disable it on a heavy forwarder to get some applications working which is a known and documented issue. The application of note was e-streamer which is most likely due to the firepower also not being FIPS enabled. I know Splunk documentation says you can only enable Splunk in FIPS mode from install, but there is nothing about disabling FIPS mode. Any insight, experience or advice would be appreciated.
