Management of FWSM blade - Catalyst 6509

Can I use CiscoWorks VMS v2.1 to obtain information (syslog traffic) from FWSM blade - Catalyst 6509 ?

In case of no, what management product could be used in order to perform the management ?

Thanks for help me

Hi,

The Firewall MC software version 1.1.2 will have the capability to monitor FWSM blade using 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 software which is a part of the VMS 2.1 bundle.

sorry sujit. the information you give wasn't correct.

VMS 2.1 does support FWSM 1.1.x - BUT:

VMS 2.1 does NOT support syslog messages :-)

it's comming within Security Monitor 1.2

hi v.

no you can NOT !!

the VMS 2.1 does not support FWSM syslog messages.

you still have to wait until the packet called "Security Monitor 1.2" which is to install on top of common-services.

I'll just add that the NMS team does not recommend dumping PIX syslog information to CW2K. Apparently, it fills up the log database too quickly and recovery is a bit of a bugger. I just downloaded Kiwi Syslog Daemon and have it running on another PC and use WinGrep to search through it.

Hope this helps.

Dave
