Hi All,

I have an IDSM-2 module and I have noticed that the analysis engine stops very frequently (I do a show version and I see the analisys engine not running). Is there a way to restart it without reseting the module?

I also see the following message:

Note: /etc/modules.conf is more recent than /lib/modules/2.4.30-IDS-smp-bigphys/modules.dep

does anybody know what does it mean?

I've had this happen on a few different IDS devices since we upgraded to E3. I've worked with TAC and they never told me a way to restart the anal engine without rebooting the device.

Hi Jeremy,

How did you fix the issue? do you downgrade your IDS to E2?

Hi Vicente,

The work around was to disable auto-update, sigs 3333 and 5597 (SMB MSRPC Messenger Overflow). I have no idea why this was the work around but it seems to have worked. They are also supposed to have a minor version upgrade on Monday that fixes this issue I just found out.
