I have a pair of ASA 5520s in active/standby with AIP-SSM-20 modules in each one...

I upgraded one of the sensors this morning to 6.1(1)E3 from 6.0(5)E2, since I upgraded, I'm not able to get to large portions of the new version of IDM. I creates several Java errors...

I will post several Java Tracebacks in an attached file.

I get tracebacks when:

Hitting "Next" on initial setup wizard (1st traceback)

Trying to look at "Allowed Hosts/Networks" (2nd Traceback)

Trying to look at "Users" (3rd Traceback)

It also errors when I try to open most of the options under "Interfaces".

I get the errors when running IDM in standalone. They all seem to point to a NullPointerException.

When I access the IPS via ASDM (5.2), I

can see the "Allowed hosts/networks" and users section, as well as interface information, but I get a different error when trying to look at any signatures / or Event Action Rules (default or not):

"bb cannot be cast to q"

These traces are in "tracebacks2.txt".

Computer is running Vista SP1 (yes, I'm sure Vista is part of the problem, but I dont really have a choice right now ;-))

Java Web Start 1.6.0_10

Using JRE version 1.6.0_10 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM

I'm going to try updating this sensor to 6.2 and see what happens...

Same results after upgrading to 6.2(1)E3

I have also tried clearing IDM cache, ASDM cache etc.
