How to upgrade IPS Signature

Can anyone help me with the steps of upgrading the IPS signature for the platform ASA SSM-20, IDS 4215, WV-SVC-IDSM-2 via IDM and IME. All the sensors are already upgraded with Engine E4 with signature S480.

Can I upgrade the signature directly from S480 to S507? Please let me know the file which I need to download. Is there any impact while updating the signture like reboot?

Re: How to upgrade IPS Signature

The steps for upgrading the signatures via IDM/IME are listed in this document:

Yes, you can upgrade from S480 to S507

The links to the correct files are also in the document above.  The IPS should not need to reboot during the upgrade.

Good luck!
