Hi,

 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:

/etc/init.d/guiSvr version

 

On the ScreenOS device:

get system

 

 

Let me know!

 

Ciao

With 2007.3r1, you can manage devices running ScreenOS 6.0, however to manage ScreenOS 6.1, you will need to install the Forward Support Schema Update.

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.

 

Thanks,

Chandra

Hi,

the 'forward support update" is available on Juniper download website here:

https://softserv.juniper.net/download/2007.3---11282007/NetScreen-Security_Manager/

 

You need to download:

nsm2007.3r1_schema_update_server : for the NSM server
nsm2007.3r1_schema_update_ui_win : for windows GUI client

nsm2007.3r1_schema_update_ui_linux : for Linux GUI client

 

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.

 

Ciao

Daniele

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.

 

Thanks,
Chandra
