My vendor has not supplied my license for my SSM-20 in our ASA 5520s and i would like to enable the module. Can I enable it in detect/alert mode only and just not have the latest signatures or will it even allow me to do that? The signatures are only a couple months out of date.
I think rhermes meant "You CAN install software updates on a sensor *without* a license", and yes this is true, this way you can get at least some signature updates. Signature updates are bundled with software upgrades. But the latest signature updates (separate files) cannot be installed, they will be installed and uninstalled after finding out there is no license present.
