We are using ASA 5510 with AIP-SSM 10 that having IPS Version 6.0(3)E1 with a valid licensee agreement. Now we want to update IPS version to 6.1(1)E2, is the update is possible? If yes guide me how, and also guide me or provide the link how to backup the previous one.
That is actually the wrong upgrade file for the AIP-SSM-10. The one you have is for the AIM module that goes in routers and high end switches. You will need to download a different upgrade file that is not for the AIM.
Yes, I just did the same thing. You will need to download the upgrade file with the pkg extension (not the image file which I kept trying to do). The file is: IPS-K9-6.1-1-E2.pkg under the security software, Software Upgrades.
Once you have that file, either put it on an FTP server, or put the file on the local client that you are using to connect to the IPS with IDM. You will need to go to Update Sensor within the IDM and either choose FTP or the local update path and point to the file. The sensor will reload when it is done, but will not reboot you ASA. It will take about 5 minutes, and then you should be able to reconnect to your sensor with the IDM.
Here is a helpful link on upgrading:

Hope this helps!
