Cisco IPS devices not logging data when using the LEM agent

Updated: September 28, 2018


Cisco IPS devices are not logging data when using the LEM agent. Instead, you will see many Connection Timeout events coming into the LEM console from the Cisco IPS 5+ (SDEE) connector or Tool Alias.


LEM 6.1 and earlier


Workaround for LEM 6.1 agents

  1. Install the LEM agent.
  2. Go to the following locations: 
    • For 32-bit: C:\Windows\System32\ContegoSPOP\
    • For 64-bit: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ContegoSPOP\
  3. Open the SWLEMAgent.lax file.
  4. Add the value -Dhttps.protocols=SSLv2Hello,TLSv1,SSLv3 to the property, so that the SWLEMAgent.lax file now looks like the following:
  5. Save the modified file.
  6. Restart the agent.

LEM pre-6.1 agents

SolarWinds recommends that you upgrade LEM agents earlier than version 6.0.
