Limitations McAfee IPS FO Sensor Model ?

Hi,

According to the following sentece, do you know what is the exactly limitations of FO Sensor Model ?

"Both Sensors must be of the identical model type, and have the same signature set and software

loaded. (One of the two Sensors may be a "Failover (FO)" Sensor model, which is a fully functional

Sensor limited to operation as part of a failover pair; it cannot operate standalone."

McAfee Network Security Platform 8.3  IPS Administration Guide (Page 118)

Re: Limitations McAfee IPS FO Sensor Model ?

Hi Samir

An FO type sensor must always be paired with a standard type sensor in order to get updates. If you have a 'standalone' FO type sensor installed on NSM, it won't take updates (policy, sigset, etc).

Once the sensor is paired with a standard sensor, the manager is able to update both sensors.

Regards

David
