I am trying to import a configuration into VMS 2.2. I am sure that all the passwords are correct and that all the IPs are correct. Is there a particular step(s) that I am omitting? Are there correct ways to actually discover your PIX in VMS IDSMC?
No, the PIX MC does not even need to be installed for the shunning feature for the IDS devices to work. When you configure the IDS MC to shun, you will configure the blocking devices parameters within the IDS MC. This will include the device type (Pix), the ip address, the username and password amongst other things.
Obviously, some of the signatures need to be tweaked to shun as a response to firing. Once a signature fires, the IDS will SSH or Telnet into the Pix and use the "shun" command available in the pix to block the connection.
There are some good pointers from the IDS team in other posts on this board regarding caution when using the Shun feature.
