the AIP-SSM module running version 6.1(1) E1 is making my ASA do a failover every 2 weeks, when i check the ASA logs i find the following error : Module in slot 1 experienced a control channel communication failure.

this was also the case with the older 6.0 (3) 6.0 (4) versions

any thoughts ?

There is no 6.1(1)E1 for the AIP-SSM module. The latest version of software is the same as the other appliance platforms, 6.0(4)E1

I would assume your bug hasn't been fixed, but reading the release notes for 6.0(4)E1 should tell you if it has been resolved or is still outstanding.

Just to get you up to date.

The standard 6.1(1)E1 upgrade file is supported on the AIP-SSM (as well as the 4240, 4255, 4260, and 4270 IPS Appliances, and the IDSM_2):


The IPS 6.1(1)E1 released on just a few weeks ago.

As for the original issue for this thread about the control channel communication issue I am not sure which DDTS this would be, and what if any version addresses the issue.

Have you talked with the TAC and determined a specific DDTS Bug ID for this issue?

no i will check with TAC, so you think this is a hardware prblem in the module ?

Thank you
