Summary
The Intrusion Protection System (IPS) uptime clock on the SMS shows that the IPS was recently rebooted. However, there is no reboot entry recorded in the logs. You can also see this on the System Summary page of the LSM or by logging in to the CLI in the IPS and running the “show ver” command.

Explanation: The system uptime counter that keeps track of the IPS runtime, rolls over after about two years and four months. This action, resets the uptime counter of the IPS to zero and makes it appear that the unit has rebooted. This reset action is normal for a system that has not rebooted in over two years. However be aware that during normal IPS device operations, rebooting the system is part of software upgrade process and if routine updates are performed, this issue should not present itself.
