I recently upgraded my IDSM-2 to 6.1. It resides in a 7609 running 12.2(18)SXF8. Mode is just as a sensor (promiscous) and does not block. All the VLANs in the 7609 are spanned to the sensor port.
Since upgrading to 6.1 and monitoring with the IME it has been hanging on a daily basis. Even while trying to access it via CLI, it's hung. Only way to restore communications is to reboot the IDSM (HW Command in the 7609).
Before I open a TAC case on it, has anyone else out there had similar experiences?
