IPS MC: It doesn´t show any signature.


I had IPS MC 2.1.0 (Build 123) functioning fine. I installed the idsmdc2.1.0-win-CSCsc336961.tar file in order to solve the CSCsc33696 bug. Next, I installed an update signature for IPS version 5 (But I didn´t has any IPS sensor version 5, I just was checking), but the update didn´t work. Afther it, I noted that I have a big issue: When I try to modify any signature, in the Settings->IOS IPS, it shows:

Object loading failed. Errors occurred while loading the Signatures. Not all signatures may have been loaded.

It doesn´t show any signature.

I erased all the sensors, including the IOS IPS. Then I import one of the IOS IPS and follow the instruction for the CSCsc33696 bug. I reimported the device, deployed configuration, disabled the IPS feature in the router and enabled the feature in order to load the signature configuration, but the issue persist. Then, I installed the newest signature update to IDS sensor version 4 (it includes IOS IPS update) and it installed without problems, but the problem in the sigature page perisist.

I reinstalled the IPS MC, but the problem persist. I uninstalled the IDS MC, and installed again without save the database. It shows the application IDS MC and Security Monitor without configuration, like a new installation, but the issue persist!!!

Someone had this problem? Someone know how can I solve it?



Re: IPS MC: It doesn´t show any signature.

The Cisco IOS IPS feature restructures the existing Cisco IOS Intrusion Detection System (IDS), allowing customers to choose to load the default, built-in signatures or to load a Signature Definition File (SDF) called attack-drop.sdf onto the router. The attack-drop.sdf file contains 118 high-fidelity Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) signatures, providing customers with the latest available detection of security threats.
