Supported Software for Security Manager

Security Manager supports the software on the devices that it manages as described in the following sections:

Cisco IOS Software Supported Versions

The following list describes the minimum supported Cisco IOS Software versions plus the specific release numbers that have additional support in Security Manager for standard routers. You must use a software version that meets at least the minimum. If you use a version that is not listed, Security Manager will treat it as one of these versions (the most closely-matching version, which is typically the release number nearest to it but lower). Any features that are unique to the version you are using are not supported in Security Manager. Note that the device model might limit the versions you are allowed to install; this is not controlled by Security Manager.

  • 15.0—The supported version is 15.0(1)M.
  • 12.4T—Other versions include 12.4(2)T, 12.4(4)T, 12.4(6)T, 12.4(9)T, 12.4(11)T, 12.4(11)T1, 12.4(11)T2, 12.4(15)T, 12.4(20)T, 12.4(22)T, 12.4(24)T.

  • 12.1—Other versions include 12.1(4)E3 and 12.1(5)T9.

Cisco routers and switches have these software restrictions:

  • Security Manager does not support Cisco IOS Software Release 15.x for Catalyst switches.
  • For routers running Release 12.1 and 12.2, there is limited support for Layer 3 access rules, interfaces, and FlexConfigs, but not for any other features.
  • The software release you can use on a device is always limited to those releases that the hardware supports. For example, the 1900, 2900, and 3900 series ISRs require 15.0(1)M as a minimum release.
  • The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers software releases use a different numbering scheme, but these releases are mapped to more standard IOS release numbers in Security Manager. The following are the supported releases and their Cisco IOS software equivalent releases:

Version 2.1.x—Called 12.2(33)XNA in Security Manager.

Version 2.2.x—Called 12.2(33)XNB in Security Manager.

Version 2.3.x—Called 12.2(33)XNC in Security Manager. Security Manager treats this release as equivalent to 12.2(33)XNB except for the addition of GET VPN support.

Version 2.4.x, 2.5.x, and 2.6.x are treated like 2.3.x.


Note Although the ASR releases are mapped to IOS 12.2 releases, you must select IOS 12.3+ as the operating system type when adding the device to the Security Manager inventory.


  • For the Catalyst 6500/7600, you can use Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1, 12.2 and these versions at the specified point release and later: 12.1(13)E, 12.1(17B)SXA, 12.1(19)E, 12.1(20)E, 12.1(22)E, 12.1(23)E, 12.1(26)E, 12.2(14)SX, 12.2(14)SY, 12.2(17a)SX, 12.2(17d)SXB, 12.2(18)SXD, 12.2(18)SXE, 12.2(18)SXE1, 12.2(18)SXE2, 12.2(18)SXE4, 12.2(18)SXF2, 12.2(18)SXF4, 12.2(33)SRA, 12.2(33)SRB, 12.2(33)SXH, and 12.2(33)SXI.

Note You cannot use the Catalyst Operating System on a device managed by Security Manager.


  • For the Catalyst 3500/4500, you can use Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1 and 12.2 and the following versions at the specified point release and later. Note that specific devices support a subset of the listed versions:

12.2(37)SE, SG

12.2(31)SGA

12.2(25)EWA, FZ, EZ, EY, SE, EW, SEA, SEB, SEC, SED, SEE, SEG

12.2(20)EU

12.1(26)E

12.1(20)EW, EU, E

12.1(19)EA1, EA1d

12.1(14)AX

12.1(11)AX

  • To configure and manage VPNs on Catalyst 6500/7600 devices, the earliest software release is Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(17b)SXA.
  • To configure and manage IDSM settings on Catalyst 6500/7600 devices, the earliest software release is Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(18)SXF4.
  • For routers running an IPS-enabled version of Cisco IOS Software, the earliest supported Cisco IOS Software release is 12.4(11)T2. In addition, to perform signature updates on routers running Cisco IOS Software release 15.0, you need a a separate ios-ips-update license, which you must manually apply to the device.
  • The IPS subsystem has a separate numbering scheme, which you can view in the device properties in Security Manager. The 3.x subsystems are equivalent to IPS 5.x. The subsystems are:

3.000.001, supported in 12.4(11)T to 12.4(11)T4.

3.001.001, supported in 12.4(15)T to 12.4(15)T2.

3.001.002, supported in 12.4(15)T3 to 12.4(24)T.

3.002.001, supported in 15.0(1)M+.

Other Supported Software

The following list describes the minimum supported software versions plus the specific release numbers that have additional support in Security Manager for devices that run operating system other than Cisco IOS Software. You must use a software version that meets at least the minimum. If you use a version that is not listed, Security Manager will treat it as one of these versions (the most closely-matching version, which is typically the release number nearest to it but lower). Any features that are unique to the version you are using are not supported in Security Manager.

  • Cisco PIX 500 Series Firewalls—PIX Firewall Software Release 6.3(1-5), 7.0(1-2, 4-8), 7.1(1-2), 7.2(1-5), and 8.0(2-4).
  • Cisco ASA-5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA)—ASA Software Release 7.0(1-2, 4-8), 7.1(1-2), 7.2(1-5), 8.0(2-3), 8.1(1-2), and 8.2(1), with the following exceptions:

Do not use this version of Security Manager to manage ASA 8.3 devices. This version of Security Manager configures ASA 8.3 devices in downward-compatibility mode, meaning that the device configuration does not use the new features introduced in version 8.3. Because of the extensive changes introduced with version 8.3, it is not downwardly-compatible with older ASA releases. If you want to manage ASA 8.3 devices with Security Manager, you must upgrade to Security Manager 4.0.

You cannot use Security Manager to manage SSL VPNs on ASA 7.x. ASA Software Release 7.2(4) is supported only on the ASA 5505 platform.

  • Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Firewall Services Module (FWSM)—FWSM Software Release 2.2(1), 2.3(1-4), 3.1(1, 3-9), 3.2(1-4), and 4.0(1).
  • IPS sensors and modules—IPS Software 5.1, 6.0, 6.1, 6.2, and 7.0, with these restrictions:

IPS signature updates are supported only on IPS Software 5.1(5)E1 and later.

You cannot configure any IPv6 features that are available with version 6.2 and higher. If you configure IPv6 features directly on the device, Security Manager does not disturb your configuration. Consider using Security Manager’s FlexConfig feature to manage IPv6 configurations.

Software Supported in Downward Compatibility Mode

Security Manager directly supports many individual point releases for the various operating systems you can use with the supported devices. When Security Manager supports a specific point release, it means that you can configure some features new to that release using the product.

Some point releases are supported in “downward compatibility mode.” In this mode, you can use the product to configure devices running that point release, but you cannot configure features that are new in the release unless you use FlexConfigs. Thus, the point release is treated as being the same as the nearest point release to it, and Security Manager maps the release number to that supported release.

The following table lists the releases that are specifically supported in Security Manager, and the point releases that are supported as downward equivalents to the release. The table might not include information about every downward compatible release. In general, if a version is not listed here or in Supported Software for Security Manager, Security Manager will treat it as one of the supported versions (the most closely-matching version, which is typically the release number nearest to it but lower).

You can use the Auto Update Server application with any Cisco ASA-5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliance or Cisco PIX 500 Series Firewall and ASA or PIX software versions supported by Security Manager.


Note You cannot use devices configured in multiple-context mode with Auto Update Server.


Supported Devices and Software Versions for Performance Monitor

The following table lists the devices that you can monitor in Performance Monitor and describes supported software versions on those devices. The software versions that you can use on a device are limited in all cases by what can actually run on the device and are further limited in some cases by restrictions that Performance Monitor imposes.
