AIP-SSM errors


the AIP-SSM module running version 6.1(1) E1 is making my ASA do a failover every 2 weeks, when i check the ASA logs i find the following error : Module in slot 1 experienced a control channel communication failure.

this was also the case with the older 6.0 (3) 6.0 (4) versions

any thoughts ?


Re: AIP-SSM errors

There is no 6.1(1)E1 for the AIP-SSM module. The latest version of software is the same as the other appliance platforms, 6.0(4)E1

I would assume your bug hasn't been fixed, but reading the release notes for 6.0(4)E1 should tell you if it has been resolved or is still outstanding.

Re: AIP-SSM errors

Just to get you up to date.

The standard 6.1(1)E1 upgrade file is supported on the AIP-SSM (as well as the 4240, 4255, 4260, and 4270 IPS Appliances, and the IDSM_2):


The IPS 6.1(1)E1 released on just a few weeks ago.

As for the original issue for this thread about the control channel communication issue I am not sure which DDTS this would be, and what if any version addresses the issue.

Have you talked with the TAC and determined a specific DDTS Bug ID for this issue?

Re: AIP-SSM errors

no i will check with TAC, so you think this is a hardware prblem in the module ?

Thank you
