NSM2007.3 supports ScreenOS 6.0 natively without needs for any "support schema update".
Can you check both software versions for NSM and the firewall device?
On the NSM server:
On the ScreenOS device:
Let me know!

the nsm version is - 2007.3r1
and isg1000 version is - 6.0.0r3.0 or 6.1.0r3.0
is it supported?

Whenever a new release of ScreenOS comes out, until NSM starts supporting all the new features of this version, an interim release is done called "Forward Support Schema Update".
Eg. NSM 2007.3rX supported all releases until ScreenOS 6.0. After the release of 2007.r3, we had ScreenOS 6.1 that got released. Since we have customers who would like to use the new features of 6.1, we release the forward support update, which after installing on the NSM server & NSM GUI client, you can manage a device running ScreenOS 6.1.
Hope this clarifies.

so if i understand correctly the nsm 2007.3rx can support 6.1 but it requeires an installation of the forward support update?
my next question is how can i get the forward support update?

the 'forward support update" is available on Juniper download website here:
You need to download:
Schema update providing additional NSM support for ScreenOS 6.1 and IDP 75, 250, 800 and 8200 devices
The installation is a simple unpack & execute.

If you have chosen default for NSM installation, then choose the same for Forward Support Schema installation as well. The default is /var/netscreen.
The best way to see what directory you have used is to by doing
ls -l /usr/netscreen/GuiSvr/
Identify where the softlink for var is pointing to & that's your install directory.
