NSX-T Distributed IDS/IPS Offline Signatures Update

Hi All,

Having some issues uploading IDPS Signatures into an NSX-T (Version 3.1.3.5) - the NSX-T is not connected to the internet so I am following the VMware documentation for Offline download of the signatures zip bundle (https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-NSX-T-Data-Center/3.2/administration/GUID-3AC24DFF-A858-496C-B730-...).

The error when trying to Upload IDPS Signatures is: "Version file in uploaded IDS signature bundle does not contain the version ID."

I checked the bundle zip and the content of the "IDSSignaturesVersion" file is as follows:

{"last_updated_time":"1667842730103", "nsx-ids-bundle":"IDPSSignatures.1274.2022-11-07T17:38:50Z"}

Thanks for your support.

SOLVED - the problem was that I was downloading the Signatures file from the wrong repository - version 2.0 instead of 1.0 likely the directory refers to version 3.1 and not 3.2

> GET https://api.prod.nsxti.vmware.com/2.0/intrusion-services/signatures

instead of 

> GET https://api.prod.nsxti.vmware.com/1.0/intrusion-services/signatures

All working now.
