Default nrdirmap (Unix Director) not updating with new alerts

Anyone know why my default nrdirmap is not updating with new alerts?

I also have problems at times deleting what little alerts I have. I have run the nrDeleteOVwD script probably a hundred times already as well as stopped and restarted the HP OV processes and NR processess.

Re: Default nrdirmap (Unix Director) not updating with new alert

According to a Cisco Engineer, this can be caused by creating a Custom Signature via the SigWizMenu, nrConfigure, or IDM on the sensor in the String.TCP engine which has a blank SigStringInfo field. When that signature fires an alarm, nrdirmap expects that field to be "NON-NULL". In my case it was, and as such the nrdirmap would die severing connection to smid and eventd. In this case the signature which I created was the one posted on this forum for the SPIDA Worm (default sa account access).

I've changed my description and all seems to be working properly at this time.
