Hi to all!


I inserted stand alone FWSM 3.1.(4) module into CSM 3.0.1.


During discover policy, it gives me the error about version unsupported.

I know, that I can leave this error, using CSM 3.1.


the error...

----------------------------------------

Description

There is a major change on device FWSM-ROMA.

The target type changed.

The version on device is: 3.1(4), platform: Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Firewall Services Module, mode: ROUTER, multiplicity: SINGLE, target type: TARGET.UNDEFINED.

The version in CSM database is: 2.3(1), platform: Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Firewall Services Module, mode: ROUTER, multiplicity: SINGLE, target type: TARGET.FWSM.L3.

Operation stop


Action

Please verify running device version with the version in Cisco Security Manager database

Recreate device in Cisco Security Manager Database if needed

------------------------------------------


The CSM3.01 Supported devices document says about that:


Supported Software

.........

Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Firewall Services Module?Firewall Services Module Software

Release 2.2, 2.3, and 3.1.

.......



The error description says that:


....The version in CSM database is: 2.3(1),...



So, if I can manage 3.1, why the error description says that in the database is stored the 2.3.(1)?


Thanks.

Hi vazquez,

you mean that:

------------------

Security Manager 3.0.1 supports discovery of firewall policies only.

--------------------

So, I cannot deploy rules into theese modules with CSM 3.0.1?


Thanks

Leonardo

yes I know this answer,

I loaded FWSM 3.1.4 into CSM.

I see it.


But i don't understand how I can discovery policy and how I can deploy policy into FWSM.

Seems that CSM3.01 doesn't mapping the FWSM 3.1.4 SW configuration files.

Documents explain that I can manage 3.1 FWSM IOS SW with CSM3.0.1.

Tks
