I just replaced my PC, and reloading all monitoring software. I loaded IME 6.x, and added 3 devices (ASA AIM-20 Primary and Failover, 4240 sensor).
Then, I remembered there was a newer version (7.0.3), so I downloaded that version, and installed. Everything looked good (software did an uninstall of the old version, then reinstall of the new version), but when I started the IME, there were NO devices listed.
I "added" the devices with no issues, but now the "Event Monitoring" shows both the "Old" and the "New" devices. (I "Named" the devices differently when adding the second time, "AIP-SSM-20 Primary" originally, and "5540-Primary" the second time.) How can I "fix" this issue, other than a full Uninstall and Reinstall of the software?
There are a couple of options really. The first option would be to adjust the event monitoring to filter for only the sensor names that you want to see. This can be done from IME under Event Monitoring->Filter->Other Parameters->Sensor names. This will enable you to filter the events for only the sensors that you want. The other option would require you to remove all the old event data. To do this you would need to close IME and stop the IME service. Once this is done you can go to the following location (if installed in the default directory) and delete the contents of the alarmDB directory.
C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\Cisco IPS Manager Express\MYSQL\data\alarmDB
Once the above is done then you should be able to start the IME service again and the old data should be removed.
