Thanks a lot for the response. Great help.

Last Question:

According to the discussions before, this bug (ticket sk35018) will not be fixed (jclarke). Is it true? if it is not true, can you let me know which LMS rel can fix this one? LMS3.1 or LMS 3.2.

Yes, you read it correctly: The takeaway is Sybase has told Cisco LMS is not really considered vulnerable, so no fix is needed nor provided.
