 "Error connecting to sensor. Failed to create sensor - Exiting IDM."

In the above example, is the IP address assigned to the IPS sensor device in-question's Management (C&C) interface.

Using an affected version of the CSM (Cisco Security Manager) client application attempting to launch a managed IPS sensor device's "Device Manager..." feature.
