  • 1.  ids error causes commit to fail

    Posted 27 days ago
    Hi All,

    I'm a new poster to this forum because I'm stuck on an issue and would appreciate some worldy advice...

    I'm a Juniper hobbiest. I have Juniper SRX and EX in my very small network but I'm a learner rather than a company so I don't have access to JTAC etc.

    I've installed a Juniper SRX300 as the internet edge firewall connecting to a fibre broadband line, it works great. However since upgrading the Junos ( I'm currently on 21.2r3.8) I cannot commit the configuration any more, it spins the below error, seamingly about the IDS function.

    I'm not using IDS (i don't have a license for it!) So I've tried to delete the IDS configuration lines, that's not worked.

    I found this thread which describes my issue, but as I don't have the license or support I can't follow the resolution :(
    https://supportportal.juniper.net/s/article/SRX-IDP-Configuration-commit-fails-with-error-Please-install-the-latest-detector?language=en_US

    Can anyone offer any advice that isn't "buy a license and support" as that's not within my budget :)

    Error:

    Hi,

    Delete the IDP config completely - delete security idp. Then commit should work ok.

    After that, clear IDP files - request security idp storage-cleanup cache-files & request security idp storage-cleanup downloaded-files.

    Try the upgrade again.
