Updating the NSM Attack Database (NSM Procedure)

You must update the attack object database before you can use IDP functionality. To update the IDP and deep inspection (DI) databases and the IDP detector engine, download new attack objects from the attack object database server to the NSM GUI server.

To update the IDP and DI attack object databases on the NSM GUI server:

  1. From the Tools menu in the NSM UI, click View/Update NSM Attack Database. The Attack Update Manager wizard appears.
  2. Click Next to proceed. The current attack database version in NSM and the latest attack database version appear.
  3. Click Finish to start downloading the latest attack database version from the server. The progress and status of the attack update process appear in the Job Information page.
  4. Click one:
    • Cancel Job—Cancels the IDP detector engine loading process.
    • Refresh—Refreshes the status of the update process.
    • Notify Later—Notifies the completion of the update process.
    • Close—Closes the Job Information page.

After you have updated the attack object database on the NSM GUI server, you can use that database to update the attack object database on your managed devices.
