In IDSMCm Under Configuration >> Updates >> "Update Sensor Version" is the option you should be selecting to update the sensor. If you select "Update Network IDS Signatures", it will only update the signature version on the IDSMC and not on the sensor and it will give you the message that you are getting.
I think this behavior has changed in the newer IDSMC. Since earlier there used to be only one option from where you can select the sensor to update.
Thanks for your comments however the sensor version is ok and only need to u/g the signature from S50 to S55 and this is why I did not use the "update sensor version". I am going to discuss this with Cisco SE.
Today, I tried the process with IDSM-1 module (WS-x6381-IDS) & successfully upgraded the signature from 3.0(6)S42 to 3.0(6)s49 in line with the u/g instructions using IDS-MC. So far so good.
Then decided to u/g from S49 to S51. The u/g seems to have finished correctly but now can't logon to the IDSM anymore, it displays the login prompt followed by the password prompt but doesn't come back after typing the password. IDS-MC also can't talk to it anymore. Any idea here?
