IPS service has stopped and will not restart.

Hi folks,

v19.0.1 MR-1 IPS service has stopped and will not restart, the error message is the process is taking too long.

There are no entries in the Logviewer -> system log indicating any issues.

Next step please.

Update :- after two attempts the GUI shows the service as restarting. There are no entries in log viewer -> IPS.


Memory has dropped from 80+% to 66%, CPU has increased

10am yesterday I restarted a 8 port switch to see if that would fix an IPv6 issue which it did, but the memory use dropped significantly. I also changed the maximum network packet size on one LAN interface which took all interfaces off line for a short time another bug.

  • Hi Vivek,

    thank you for the instructions. I ran the script which produced a series of errors about retry count: bad number.

    The IPS update attempted to download an old file 18.17.96 and failed.
