How to disable and remove IDP blade.
I have purchased a stand-alone IDP system and want to remove the IDP blade from my ISG device.  What steps do I take.
  1. Save your configuration.  For instructions on saving your configuration, refer to

  2. Make a copy of your IDP license key, in case you need to use it again.  For instructions on saving a license-key, refer to

  3. In NSM, remove the IDP rule base.  Ensure that IDP is not referenced in the Rule Options column in the policy.  Be sure to update the device with the modified policies before proceeding to the next step.

  4. Load a non-IDP ScreenOS on the device.

  5. Upgrade the firewall to any ScreenOS version that does not have "IDP" in the name.  For example, if you have 6.1-IDP1.0r3.0 as your current ScreenOS version, load 6.1.0r3.0 onto the firewall.  If you are unsure what version you have on the firewall, enter the command, get sys, from the CLI.

    Note:   This type of ScreenOS change is not supported in NSM.  It can only be performed from either the CLI or the WebUI.  Once this ScreenOS has changed, you will need to remove the device from NSM and re-import it back into NSM (in step 5).

    For instructions on loading ScreenOS on the device, follow the instructions for upgrading the firmware in the Upgrade Guide for Screen OS 6.1:

  6. Remove the device from NSM and re-import it back into NSM.  For instructions, refer to page 528, Reimporting Devices and Security Policies, of the NSM Admin Guide:
      6.  Remove the IDP license key.  For instructions on deleting a license-key in ScreenOS, refer to

      7.  Power down the firewall and remove the IDP blade.  For reference, see the ISG Hardware guide:
