The release notes from yesterday's release seem to appear in contradiction within itself. Maybe I am not reading this appropriately.
In the upgrade section I see,
"Upgrade to 6.0.4
The 6.0.3 release, distributed in April 2009, was the last software release for the CS-MARS 100, 100e, 200, GC, and GCm appliances. Therefore, you cannot apply the 6.0.4 release to these appliance models. For a full list of supported appliance models, see Supported Hardware."
In the "Supported Hardware" section I see both the 100 and the 100e. How is it both not supported and supported?
"Release 6.0.4 supports the following Cisco Security MARS Appliance models:
Local Controller Appliances: 2nd Generation
â¢Cisco Security MARS 25R (CS-MARS-25R-K9)
â¢Cisco Security MARS 25 (CS-MARS-25-K9)
â¢Cisco Security MARS 55 (CS-MARS-55-K9)
â¢Cisco Security MARS 110R (CS-MARS-110R-K9)
â¢Cisco Security MARS 110 (CS-MARS-110-K9)
â¢Cisco Security MARS 210 (CS-MARS-210-K9)
Local Controller Appliances: 1st Generation
â¢Cisco Security MARS 20R (CS-MARS-20R-K9) as a MARS 20
â¢Cisco Security MARS 20 (CS-MARS-20-K9)
â¢Cisco Security MARS 50 (CS-MARS-50-K9)
â¢Cisco Security MARS 100e (CS-MARS-100E-K9) as a MARS 100
â¢Cisco Security MARS 100 (CS-MARS-100-K9)
â¢Cisco Security MARS 200 (CS-MARS-200-K9)
Global Controller Appliances: 2nd Generation
â¢Cisco Security MARS GC2R (CS-MARS-GC2R-K9)
â¢Cisco Security MARS GC2 (CS-MARS-GC2-K9)
Global Controller Appliances: 1st Generation
â¢Cisco Security MARS GCm (CS-MARS-GCM-K9) as a MARS GC
â¢Cisco Security MARS GC (CS-MARS-GC-K9)"
And what exactly does "Cisco Security MARS 100e (CS-MARS-100E-K9) as a MARS 100" (100e as a 100) mean? Is there some tweak to trick a 100e to think it is a 100?
Re: Seek clarification on hardware supported in 6.0.4
We have a MARS 100e, and had issues migrating to 6.x and the upgrades to get to 6.0.3. Upgrading to 6.0.4 with the GUI now also fails. Here is what is happening trying to upgrade from 6.0.3 to 6.0.4. any ideas? tia
