AIP-SSM Upgrade Procedure

Hi everybody!

I have ASA5520 version 8.2(1) with AIP-SSM-20 module

and I want to upgrade AIP-SSM-20 software from version 6.1(3)E3 to 7.0(2)E4

I go to the download site and see the following list:

Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) Recovery Software:

  • IPS-K9-r-1.1-a-7.0-2-E4.pkg

        Release Date: 29/Mar/2010

        IPS Recovery Image File

Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) Signature Updates:

  • IPS-sig-S481-req-E4.pkg

        Release Date: 31/Mar/2010

        E4 Signature Update S481

Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) System Software:

  • IPS-SSM_20-K9-sys-1.1-a-7.0-2-E4.img

        Release Date: 29/Mar/2010

        IPS-SSM_20 System Image File

Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) System Upgrades

  • IPS-K9-7.0-2-E4.pkg

        Release Date: 29/Mar/2010

        IPS 7.0 Major Upgrade File (All Supported Platforms Except AIM-IPS and NME-IPS)

  • IPS-engine-E4-req-7.0-2.pkg

        Release Date: 29/Mar/2010

        IPS E4 Engine Update

I am somewhat confused by the number of files and want to ask what the procedure/sequence I should follow to upgrade?

Re: AIP-SSM Upgrade Procedure

This is the file that you would like to use to upgrade it:

Intrusion Prevention System  (IPS) System Upgrades

IPS-K9-7.0-2-E4.pkg

To upgrade:

1) Upload the "IPS-K9-7.0-2-E4.pkg" file through IDM

2) IDM --> Configuration --> Sensor Management --> Update Sensor --> choose Update is located on this client --> choose the "IPS-K9-7.0-2-E4.pkg" file --> hit the "Update Sensor" button.

It will take a while (around 20 minutes) to upgrade the sensor, so don't panic if it doesn't come back up in "UP" status straight away.

Hope that helps.
