Issue/Introduction

Primary and HA hub have the following key value in the registry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\KeyExchangeAlgorithms\Diffie-Hellman\

ClientMinKeyBitLength 0x00000200(512)

The required setting should be 2048 instead of 512.

Would changing the key to 2048 have any impact to any probes in the primary hub and primary HA hub?
