I am in the process of setting up a lab for Nitro using VMs. Ive got ESM setup with a receiver attached, but having an issue when trying to add an ACE. It looks like ESM is able to key / change the password on the ACE, but apparently the ACE thinks it has a FIPS mode setting and isnt allowing ESM to complete the process of adding the device. Has anyone else seen this issue? These are all new boxes / VMs and ive already reset the SSH key on the ACE and tried to re-add the device. Same issue occurs.
Are you running in FIPS mode? I'm guessing not.
I have never worked with Nitro VM's .... was it pre-built VM file or did you install from a CD/DVD int a VM. Usually a fresh install on a hardware device will ask if you want FIPS mode. Can you rebuild/re-initialize the ACE with a re-install?
Wish I had some real answers....
