Configuring the encryption package used to connect to Access Control on a 64-bit operating system means that a different registry location must be configured. This TechDoc documents the appropriate Wow6432Node where this configuration should be made.
IMPORTANT: This article contains information about modifying the registry.
Before you modify the registry, make sure to create a back up of the registry and ensure that you understand how to restore the registry if a problem may occur. For information about how to back up, restore, and edit the registry, please review the relevant Microsoft Knowledge Base articles on support.microsoft.com.
How do I configure a C++ Connector Server on 64-bit Windows to connect to an Access Control endpoint?
When installed on a 64-bit operating system the components that make up our Access Control connector need a configuration directive on how to determine their encryption settings, but these are stored in a different location for 64-bit Windows.
In this example our encryption settings will be:
On your server where the Identity Manager C++ Connector Server is installed, perform the following:
This is the updated registry location required for the Encryption settings when run on a 64-bit Windows platform. The application will automatically read from this location when run on a 64-bit Windows platform, and no application code changes are anticipated for 64-bit Windows Operating System support.
