Cisco Bug: CSCur46680 - CSM: IPS Device Manager Cross-launch Fails "Error connecting to sensor"
Jan 18, 2017
- Cisco Security Manager
Known Affected Releases
Symptom: When right-clicking on an IPS sensor device in the CSM Configuration Manager client application's Device View and choosing "Device Manager...", IDM cross-launches and initially appears, but an error is subsequently encountered. Example: "Error connecting to sensor. Failed to create sensor - 192.0.2.10:443. Exiting IDM." In the above example, 192.0.2.10 is the IP address assigned to the IPS sensor device in-question's Management (C&C) interface. Conditions: Using an affected version of the CSM (Cisco Security Manager) client application attempting to launch a managed IPS sensor device's "Device Manager..." feature. Initial testing suggests that this only occurs when: *The IPS sensor device(s) is NOT an IPS-4500-series model. *The IPS sensor device(s) IS running IPS software version 7.3.
