Adding a FWSM with 3.2 to MARS 4.3.5

We deployed a FWSM recently and I was dismayed to find out 3.2 on the FWSM is yet to be supported on MARS so it doesn't show as a available module on the 6500.

However you can add it via a seed file using the FWSM3 keyword.

Yes, 3.2(1) is listed but I'm running 3.2(6). If I try to add via the gui by editing the host chassis and selecting add available module the popup shows a blank list for the modules. Though the release notes show that you should use the "FWSM" device type identifier for 3.2x correctly lists FWSM3 as the identifier for 3.1 and, presumably 3.2.

Seems to be a support issue then. The 6.0 release is pretty near now ( I think August), maybe this gets fixed in that release (even tough this is not mentioned in the bulletin).

I would approach my Cisco account team in such a situation to get a fix.
