think that you might be hitting the bug id CSCsm72131.This error message is given when CSM user attempts to Add an IDS/IPS device or Discover Policies on an IDS/IPS device whose platform string changed in IPS software 6.0(4)E1. Or, CSM user attempts to Add a device or Discover Policies on a device whose platform string is not supported by CSM.

Replace the original VMS-SysObjID.xml file ( by default located in the C:\Program Files\CSCOpx\MDC\athena\config\ directory) with the attached (updated)

VMS-SysObjID.xml file. Afterwards, restart the 'Cisco Security Manager Daemon

Manager' service (CRMDmgtd), and re-try adding or discovering the affected

device(s) again.
