Introduction

This document discusses the DLL errors that appear when you launch the Cisco Security Manager. Cisco Security Manager is installed in the Windows 2000 platform which includes the Windows 2000 server, Advanced server, and Professional and Windows 2003 server.

Cisco Security Manager centrally provisions all aspects of device configurations and security policies for firewalls, VPNs, and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) devices. It also supports advanced settings that are not strictly related to security, such as Quality of Service (QoS) routing and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

Cisco Security Manager is part of the Cisco Security Management suite, which also includes Cisco Security Monitoring, Analysis, and Response System (MARS) for monitoring and mitigation.
