'IPS stat' command shows Global Detect status as "off" Technical Level
  • When the IPS Blade is enabled, the 'IPS stat' command shows Global Detect status as "off".
    [Expert@expert]# ips stat
    IPS Status: Enabled
    IPS Update Version: 635222182
    Global Detect: Off ( <-- Detection off ) 
    Bypass Under Load: Off
This will make the Security Gateway status be in detect mode.

If you go to logs and monitors, you will see that IPS does not drop the traffic. Anti-Virus traffic will drop the traffic, but IPS will let it through.

The "Global Detect: Off" status for the 'IPS stat' command is a cosmetic issue. Detect Only is on. 
A fix for this cosmetic issue is on the roadmap. 
This solution has been verified for the specific scenario, described by the combination of Product, Version and Symptoms. It may not work in other scenarios.
