Please tell us what IPS device and version software you currently have, for example a 4240 sensor running 5.17E1.

You need more than just a signature update, you need at least a service pack or version update first.

All the current signature packs require you to run one of the "E1" versions of service packs. You will need to install either 5.1(7)E1 or 6.0(4)E1 before you are able to apply the latest signature update.

This version of software is quite old, indicating quite a period of neglect on your IDSM, do you have a current license on this?

You can apply a service pack to an unlicensed sensor, but you can't apply a sigupdate. Fortunately the service pack update the signatures as of their release date.
