Description (partial)

mainApp failure on IPS results in the inability to login to the IPS command-line interface, and management tools will be unable to communicate with the IPS.

Use of SCP with a local server for auto signature update, for example, the following IPS configuration:

service host
user-server enabled
schedule-option periodic-schedule
start-time 09:10:00
interval 1
ip-address x.x.x.x
directory updates
user-name somebody
file-copy-protocol scp

The failure occurs if the connection to the SCP server or the SCP server itself is unreliable, or slow enough that the download takes longer than 5 minutes.

Using the 'upgrade scp' command from the CLI will not trigger the issue. This issue is only triggered when using the scp option with the 'service host; auto-upgrade; user-server enabled' option.
