Does the same options are used to:
updating IPS License and updating signatures on ASA-SSM-10?
Actually i updated license file received from cisco licensing team:
using IDM 6.0 > licensing option > update license > file location:
and I was trying to update signatures using same options (as i dont find seprate options to update signatuers) but it gives error:
Invalid license etc.,
could anyone guide.
Signature upgrade are seen as software updates and not as licenses.
Once you have downloaded the latest signatures, you can install them either from the CLI: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/security/ips/6.0/configuration/guide/idm/dmImage.html#wp1142504
Or from the device manager: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/security/ips/6.0/configuration/guide/idm/dmAdmin.html#wpxref84285
Try them without the "partner" part of the URL. You usually have to be logged in to see the partner links. These links should work either way.
Hope that helps.
