Re: Signature Update Problem

Iam not sure by CiscoWorks what you mean ?

Cisco Security Manager supports sig updates to IPS sensors.

Please clarify on what product you are using for sigupdates .


Re: Signature Update Problem

By Ciscoworks you must mean Cisco Security Manager (CSM). Some updates take a painfully long time to complete (like the dreaded 5 to 6 upgrade on a 4215, some never finish). If your sensor is alive there are two things you can do to clear it's status in CSM:

1. Rediscover your sensor using "Inventory only" This will keep your CSM settings but clear all the CSM pending updates.

2. Delete and rediscover your sensor. This is a more drastic method as you have to repopulate all your CSM assigned policies and settings.
