IDSM-2 Password and config guide

Hello, i need some help here about IDS, i'm so noob about IDS.

Like another ppl's case before, i also can't access the IDS module. It's likely that someone changed the password before and i'm the new guy in this company. And it's never activated in 6500 switch before. As i see there's no configuration in show run | inc intrusion-detection.

I think about reimage cause i have no idea what is the login of root and service in IDS as i read in documentation.

I can only access login with user : guest and pass : cisco. After i reset the cf:1 and it goes to maintenance image version 2.1(2).

When i show module in 6500 switch, it shows :

Mod Ports Card Type Model Serial No.

--- ----- -------------------------------------- ------------------ -----------

4 8 Intrusion Detection System (MP) WS-SVC-IDSM-2 SAD104400HR

Mod MAC addresses Hw Fw Sw Status

--- ---------------------------------- ------ ------------ ------------ -------

--- --------------------------- ------------------ ------------ ------- -------

4 IDS 2 accelerator board WS-SVC-IDSUPG ADBG63900378 2.5 Ok

4 Pass

and when i show version and image in the IDS as "guest", it shows :

guest@localhost.localdomain#show version

Maintenance image version: 2.1(2)

For the show config above, what image should i get to reimage this IDS? And could you give me the link? And give me the link the link of config guide to this stuff. And for one thing, i just found 1 IDSM-2 module in 6500 and no IDSM-1 as i know as sensor. Could i use IDSM-2 standalone to detect malicious traffic and packet?

Thanks before and sorry for being so noob and asking too much ^.^

Hi Yusuff,

Could i set the IDSM-2's log into syslog application like kiwi?

Absolutely, here is one for you,

They sell a full blow one but I don't know how it is we use Cisco MARS to do event correlations.

Heres the snmp link you need.
