Cisco Application :: 6500 - ACE Compatibility With F5 GTM?
May 9, 2012
We have cisco ace 30 modules installed in cisco 6500 switches. For application availability purpose from the internet, we need to have some global site selector/3rd party devices with similar feature set that of cisco gss.
whether cisco ace is compatible to ge tintegrated with other 3rd party devices like F5 GTM?
We have a pair of 6500s with Sup720 running 12.2(33)SXI3. Each has an ACE-20 (s/w A2(2.0)) and FWSM (s/w v3.2(15)). We have reached a limit on the number of rules we can configure on the FWSM, and have determined that we shall upgrade to 4.1(5), with ASDM to 6.2(2)F. A question has been raised regarding the s/w on the ACE-20 modules. Do we need to upgrade them as well?
can I plug power supply from 4500 to 6500? more specifically we have power supply PWR-C45-1300ACV. And we need to place some power supply to 6500, which has only one active module. So 1300 should be enough for it. But we dont know if they are physically compatible, if it is possible to plug. I didnt find this power supply to be officially?
I have installed ANM 5.2 virtual appliance.I have an issue importing a Catalyst 6500 device.When I try to import it, I get the following error: Device discovery failed: Cannot communicate to the device.Authentication failure while attempting to connect. Verify the device type and credentials. I double verified and the credentials are correct.I user SSH version 2.I use the following special carachters in the password: "!" and space.I don't use enable password to connect to the 6500 device. The 6500 device has a privilege 15 username.In ANM, the enable password is a requirement so I just fill in the regular password.I think the issue is appearing due to one of the following:
1.) The ANM does not support the special carachters I use in the 6500 password.
2.) Then ANM requires enable password, while I don't use enable password in the 6500 switch.
The 6500 runs SXI6 software version.I can't configure an enable password or configure a test username without special carachters beacause it's against the organization's policy.
I have done this in the past but I cannot find it anywhere......how do you display the uptime of a CSM module in a 6500? The chassis has an uptime of over 2 years, but I believe the CSM module was power cycled at some point within that 2 years and I need to find out if we may be running in to the bug that occurs after 828days of uptime. We are running 4.2(6) on the CSM and 12.2(18)SXF1 IOS on the SUP.
First of all, I want you to know that I do understand that it's not a good design at all, but I still need to implement it.My ACE20 in 6500 works in routed mode with VLAN 101 (10.0.101.0/24) as the client-side VLAN. I therefore have Vlan101 SVI (10.0.101.1/24) on 6500.I also have VLAN 200 (10.0.200.0/24) on 6500 with SVI Vlan200 (10.0.200.1/24) and I want to create a static bidirectional NAT so that clients, connecting to IP address in VLAN 200 (10.0.200.64) would be NATed to VIP (10.0.101.10).Let's say we have clients (10.0.500.0/24) connecting through gig1/0/1.Here is my current setup on 6500.
I was asked to mount ACESMs on each of the CAT6K switches of a VSS cluster (one ACESM on each individual switch).On a non-VSS environment, the "svclc module <slot> vlan-group <group>" command is used to bind the VLAN group to the module on a certain slot. But now I am facing a VSS scenario, I will need to combine switch and slot in order to reference each of the individual modules...
How do I "index" each of the ACESMs in a VSS cluster? ¿Is there an extension of the aforementioned command to be able to combine switch and slot information?
i have configure new ACE 30 module on top of 6500 core switch , the issues am facing whenver i want to access to https://ACE_IP and after i enter the user name and the password , it's forwared me to the follwoing page: is there anything should i configure to avoid this page ?
I have an ACE10-6500-K9 (Application Control Engine service module for Catalyst 6500) but I can't access it because I lost the admin password.I would like to know how to perform a Password Recovery Procedure on this device.Is it similar to the password recovery procedure on an ACE 4700 appliance?
I have Cisco 6500 with FWSM and ACE module which are in one central DC. Also we have four different Datacenter (Hub & spoke) and in our FWSM we have configured four contexts in central DC FWSM for each DC. Each DC servers are different VLAN and IP subnet. Now we have to configure ACE module for load balancing among those different subnet servers. What will be the design and configuration for this solution? Like routed or one-arm mode design.
Now customer requirement is we have to load balance using ACE between these App Servers which are in different context s in FWSM and one Server is not FWSM. how to configure or design or placement of ACE and FWSM for above scenario.
Since the ACE supports only static routing, when pointing a default route from the ACE what is your preferred method when using multiple 6500s with an ACE in each in a failover scenario to prevent just pointing at one 6500? Static route to an HSRP address? Multiple static routes on the ACE, etc?
how a static entry under a "sticky" performs Configuring Static IP Address Sticky Table Entries Cisco Documentation Says When you configure a static entry, the ACE enters it into the sticky table immediately. Configuring the ACE Action on Server Failure failaction purge # The purge keyword specifies that the ACE remove the connections to a real server if that real server in the server farm fails after you enter the command. The ACE sends a reset (RST) to both the client and the server that failed. Cisco Documentation Says If you do not configure this command, the ACE takes no action when a server fails
Report run via Individual Web server URL’sThe report takes less than 20 minutes (average 15 minutes) to fetch and return the data. This is observed 9 out of 10 times.Report run via ACE Load Balanced URLThe report keeps on running for more than 20 minutes and never completes. The front end keeps showing report is running.The data in general when tested directly by running queries against the database (bypassing the platform) completes in 15-18 minutesThe network connectivity for each and every ports involved (Loadbalancer/Servers) have been throulgly checked.
My carrier is dropping off a single mode fiber on LC connection 10gig port but on myrouter I am using XFP-10G-MM-SR modules. Can I still use a SMF to connect from handoff to this router or do I need a different module?
We have LMS 4.0.1 with 300 devices license and we want to upgrade it to 4.1, pls. let me now if it's free or any cost is assocated with it.Earlier when we directly installed LMS 4.0 license on 4.1, it was not accepting.
The ISE compatibility Matrix (June 5, 2013), does have a row for WLC 5760 in its tables.
The WLC 5760 Release Notes says it is compatible with with ISE without specfying which features. Why is the WLC 5760 missing from the ISE Compat Matrix and how can I get specific ISE feature support (ie CoA, DACL).
Since we have now got a go for upgrading the IOS I have a little difficaulties finding if the current IOS will upgrade correctly to the advised version without any loss.Current version is (s72033_rp-IPSERVICESK9_WAN-M), Version 12.2(18)SXF7 In the realease notes for IOS 12.2(33)SXJ I can't find any upgrade matrix or upgrade train.Will this version upgrade without causing any mishaps on current WiSM(ver.1) and switch config?I didn't get any adequate answer, but since NO ONE did mention any repercussions, we did the upgrade......and we did loose configuration !Still the WiSM (version 1) is working all right, but where did the related WiSM configuration go?.How can you do a span session if you have no interface to tie onto?
Transceiver integration within Cisco 3945.I need to supervise the DOM (Digital optical monitoring) capability of LX laser integrated within CISCO 3945.But after study of the Cisco DataSheet on transceiver module compatibility:
I've seen that the SFP-GE-L model which supports DOM cannot be integrated within Cisco 3945.As specified in the datasheet, the only model of LX lasers compliant with CISCO 3945 is GLC-LH-SM (without DOM).However, after study of this datasheet, I can see that Cisco propose this Tranceiver model with DOM capability: GLC-LH-SMD But, so far I can't figure out if this model (GLC-LH-SMD) with the DOM capability is supported on Cisco 3945 and can be monitored through monitoring tools? If not, is there an other alternative to supervise the DOM capability with transceiver (LX) to be intergated within Cisco 3925?
I have inherited a 3945E router with an NM-8CE1T1-PRI card installed in slot 2 using the SM-NM adapter card. The command 'card type E1 2' has been issued but I only see interfaces Serial2/0:0 to Serial2/0:30.
Since it as 8 port card I was also expecting there to be Serial2/1:0 to Serial2/1:30 Serial2/2:0 to Serial2/2:30 etc etc....... Serial2/7:0 to Serial2/7:30
The router will not allow me to issue a sub slot number with the card type command.
Am I missing something in the configuration or is there an issue with this card and router combination? The show inventory has the following:
NAME: "Network Module Adapter for SM Slot on Slot 2", DESCR: "Network Module Adapter for SM Slot" PID: SM-NM-ADPTR , VID: V01, SN: FOCxxxxxxxx
NAME: "8 port channelized and PRI T1/E1 NM on Slot 2", DESCR: "8 port channelized and PRI T1/E1 NM" PID: NM-8CE1T1-PRI , VID: V01 , SN: FOCxxxxxxxx
It doesn't give any errors when booting up and the router is running c3900e-universalk9-mz.SPA.152-1.T.bin IOS.
I'd like to deploy ISE on my network and I have two big 4500R switches : a 4510R and a 4507R. A Cisco vendor told me that these last are incompatible with ISE and that I need to buy two 4500E. When I see the price of those products i'm a bit suspiscious, since I've read on that page : [URL]
Device #Minimum OS Version #MAB
The only thing is that the minimum RAM for the version 12.2(54)SG1 is not present because it's 64Mb and those models have 32Mb. If I buy RAM and update IOS, will ISE work properly on those devices ?
