Post Upgrade from 4.x to 5.0 to 5.1 questions

All, I have upgraded my first sensor 4.x to 5.0 to 5.1. Here is my process

1) Upgraded from 4.x to 5.0 using FTP with this file IPS-K9-maj-5.0-1c-S149.rpm.pkg

2) Installed License Key

3) Using VMS, I went from 5.0 to 5.1 using file IPS-K9-min-5.1-1.zip

4) Now, my switchport is down, down monitoring.

Am I missing a patch?

Did I upgrade properly?

Why is it down down monitoring and not up down monitoring on the switchport that my sensing port connects to in the switch.

You may be hitting a common issue with 5.1.1 where the senorApp process becomes unresponsive. You should not stay at 5.1.1 - you need to upgrade to 5.1.3. If you are seeing this issue then:

1) disable the sniffing interfaces

2) reboot the sensor

3) upgrade to 5.1.3

4) enable the sniffing interfaces

I had to reboot the sensor. Then, I was able to upgrade it to sp 5.1-3. The port is now up down monitoring and https access is much better through the IDM. Thank you for your help.
