Adding IPS on CSM problem


I have two ASA 5540, each one has IPS-SSM20 and also have two IPS 4255 appliances.

I'm using CSM ver 3.2.1 and i could add the two ASA and their IPS Modules but i can't now add the two IPS appliances, an error appeared "Unable to get OS version from device or configuration file. Please check if the selected device type matches with the target configuration".

what can i do now??


Re: Adding IPS on CSM problem

This procedure shows how to add a new IDS sensor and modules:

1)Click the Device View button in the toolbar.

The Devices page appears.

2)Click the Add button in the Device selector.

The New Device - Choose Method page appears with four options.

3)Choose Add New Device, then click Next.

The New Device - Device Information page appears.

4)Enter the device information in the appropriate fields.

See the Providing Device Information-New Device

5)Click Finish.

The system performs device validation tasks:

If the data is incorrect, the system generates error messages and displays the page on which the error occurs with a red error icon that corresponds to it.

If the data is correct, the device is added to the inventory and it appears in the Device selector.
