Adding the ASA-SSM-20 to CSM

The ASA SSM-10 and SSM-20 IPS modules for the ASA-5500 series products can only be managed via CSM (there is no support via VMS). I have been trying to figure out how to add the IPS functionality of the SSM-20 module to the CSM server so I can manage it in IPS Manager. The options available in Ciscoworks Device Management > Common Services > Device and Credentials > Device Management allows me to add "Cisco IPS 4200 Series Sensors" and "Cisco ASA-5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances" But neither have an option for the SSM-10 or SSM-20 IPS module. I also don't see an option to add a router IPS (like VMS does)

If anyone knows what I'm missing please clue me in.

Re: Adding the ASA-SSM-20 to CSM

Same here. I can't seem to be able to figure out how to manage these IPS modules. I have tried to add them in ciscoworks manually but it show as an unsupported device. I have tried to add it through the csm client as I did the asa it is installed in but I get a communications error like it was not actually a IOS device. If you figure it out please post the procedure - I will do the same.
