[Archive] How can I determine what version of IDP software I'm running

How can I determine what version of IDP software I'm running


There are three components to the IDP, and all must be at the same MAJOR revision (the first two numbers...1.6, 2.0 & 2.1) for the IDP to function correctly. These components are: the IDP UI, the IDP management server & the IDP sensor.

To find out what version you're running on each of these components:


Login to the UI on your workstation. Click: Help > About Netscreen -IDP User Interface.The version is the version, followed by the build number (both of these are important if you'll be calling for technical support)  


Login to your sensor. As root, type following command: #cat /usr/idp/device/doc/VERSION.

The last entry in this file is the current version (the other entries show the installation history)


Management Server:

Login to your management server.  You'll need to find & cat the file: VERSION. Depending on your installation directory, this could be anywhere, but it defaults to: /usr/idp/mgt-svr/doc/VERSION. To find this file, as user root, use bash and enter: find / -name VERSION.


#su root
#find / -name VERSION
#cat <insert results from prior command here>  

The last entry is the current version
