One of my client has recently purchased Cisco IDSM-2 for their core router i.e. 7609, however the client has missed purchasing the SUSA licencing for signature updates.

Can the client still configure the IDSM-2 without Signatue updates( in any mode) and what would be the limitations if he does not buys the SUSA in future too.

The only thing that can not be done without the SUSA license (IPS Subscription license) is to update the signature to the latest signature update file.

You can still configure the IDSM2, the only thing that can't be performed is updating the signature to the latest.

Hope that answers your question.
