Issue/Introduction

Wildcard (*) set in Signature Flag field in Data Center Security (DCS) IPS policies causes “Error adding sigflags” when pushing policy to agents.

Cause

The Signature Flag field does not accept wildcards (* or ?) as valid entries.

Using this will cause a policy error to occur, stating “Error adding sigflags”.

Resolution

Leave the Signature Flag field blank to avoid checking for specific Signature Flags.
