Couldn't update sig on VMS 2.2

My sensor ver is 4.1(1)S47. The sig version on VMS(IDSMC) is 4.0(2)S43. I download the latest sig zip file and apply it on IDSMC. When I click apply,the process seems running, but it then time out in about 30 mins. The VMS is running on Windows 2000 Server with SP4. All services started

Any help would greatly appreciate

I believe you have to use SP3.

I am not sure the SP3 on the NT machine is entirely the problem;

I have been using SP4 for sometime now with out issue.

You may need to update the service pack at the sensor:

Use the following:

Sensor# conf t

Upgrade ftp://username@//path/IDS-K9-sp-4.1-3-S61.rpm.pkg

Re import the sensor

Then use the configuration manager “IDSMC” to upgrade the LATEST signature set to

You can only apply this LATEST signature set after doing the SP update at the sensor.

Also don’t forget update the SECMON to 1.2.3 (fcs-IDSMC-V1.2.3-w2k-k9.exe) and apply the patch idsmdc1.2.3-win-CSCsa090114.tar

Hope this helps
