ASA5510 with ASA-SSM-10

ASA 8.0(4), ASDM 6.1(5)51

IPS 6.2(1)E3, IDM 6.2(1)

some "cosmetic" problems, but they do confuse the operators:

1.neither ASDM nor IDM reports on the "Licensing" gadet the correct "Auto update" status. It is reporting "Not checked" but it is checked, as host statistics status reports "Success"

2.On ASDM the IPS Dashboard Gadgets report GMT instead of local time (time on ASA and IPS is configured correctly, the IDM Dashboard gadgets do report correct local time)

anybody similar problems and/or solutions?

The time is not synchronized between the sensor and the IME local server. The IME dashboards use a time relative to the IME local time. If these times are not synchronized, the query does not return any results. When you add a sensor to IME, it checks for the time synchronization and warns you to correct it if is in wrong. IME also displays a clock warning in Home > Devices > Device List to warn you about problems with synchronization.
