Upgrade to 6.0.4
The 6.0.3 release, distributed in April 2009, was the last software release for the CS-MARS 100, 100e, 200, GC, and GCm appliances. Therefore, you cannot apply the 6.0.4 release to these appliance models. For a full list of supported appliance models, see Supported Hardware.BUT, if you look at the supported versions for 6.0.4 in the same document, it lists the following....
Release 6.0.4 supports the following Cisco Security MARS Appliance models:
Local Controller Appliances: 2nd Generation
•Cisco Security MARS 25R (CS-MARS-25R-K9)
•Cisco Security MARS 25 (CS-MARS-25-K9)
•Cisco Security MARS 55 (CS-MARS-55-K9)
•Cisco Security MARS 110R (CS-MARS-110R-K9)
•Cisco Security MARS 110 (CS-MARS-110-K9)
•Cisco Security MARS 210 (CS-MARS-210-K9)
Local Controller Appliances: 1st Generation
•Cisco Security MARS 20R (CS-MARS-20R-K9) as a MARS 20
•Cisco Security MARS 20 (CS-MARS-20-K9)
•Cisco Security MARS 50 (CS-MARS-50-K9)
•Cisco Security MARS 100e (CS-MARS-100E-K9) as a MARS 100
•Cisco Security MARS 100 (CS-MARS-100-K9)
•Cisco Security MARS 200 (CS-MARS-200-K9)
Global Controller Appliances: 2nd Generation
•Cisco Security MARS GC2R (CS-MARS-GC2R-K9)
•Cisco Security MARS GC2 (CS-MARS-GC2-K9)
Global Controller Appliances: 1st Generation
•Cisco Security MARS GCm (CS-MARS-GCM-K9) as a MARS GC
•Cisco Security MARS GC (CS-MARS-GC-K9)And hence the models listed, were listed as supported devices!!!
Well, after getting a couple of messages about this, I think I have solved this mystery.
If you look at the EOL for MARS models 100, 100e, 200, GC and GCm, you will see...
Milestone: End of SW Maintenance Releases Date: App. SW
Definition: The last date that Cisco Engineering may release any final software maintenance releases or bug fixes. After this date, Cisco Engineering will no longer develop, repair, maintain, or test the product software.
Date: April 11, 2009
So its looks like the new version will possibly run on these models, but you are out of time for Maintenance Release support.
Time to look for an upgrade/alternative.
