Importing device to PIX MC

I want to import an existing device (PIX 515) into pix mc. None of my efforts are successful.

- PIX MC access the pix via https

- authentication is o.k. (syslog message)

- show version command is executed (syslog message

- a SSL transmission from pix to pix mc starts (ethereal)

- pix terminates ssl session with FIN ACK

- pix mc sends RST

... and at the end the import is completed with errors: Cannot connect to server ... check username and password ...

PIX OS is 6.3 and I am using latest version of pix mc.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance

Edgar

Re: Importing device to PIX MC

Probably you should update IDSM or VMS or both from :

IDSM : http://cco/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/ids3-cat6500-idsm

VMS : http://cco/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/mgmt-ctr-ids

Re: Importing device to PIX MC

There was an issue (see CSCeb30468) where the HTTPS server returned one byte of data at a time under some circumstances. In versions prior to 1.2, Firewall MC did not properly process this single byte stream. This issue is fixed in Firewall MC 1.2 and later.

Re: Importing device to PIX MC

Good news,

I've found this information, in the PIX-MC 1.2.2 release-notes:

Troubleshooting

The following topics supplement the troubleshooting information found in Using Management Center for Firewalls 1.2.

Why does the error message "Failed to contact the device" appear when I try to import from a device?

Solaris patch 112438-01 is required for Firewall MC 1.2.2 to communicate with the device. After installing this patch, you must reboot the Solaris server.

I'll try it as soon as possible !

Bye,

Graziano
