I have seen links out there for a conversion tool to convert commands on a Catalyst type switch (6509) to newer IOS type switches(4500-e) switches but they all error out on me on a 404. Any link where I can get this conversion tool?
I have Ace 4710 version A4.1.1 and I am experiencing interesting problem with GUI and SSH reachability. I am unable to connect to management vlan3000. Interesting is that I can ping from ACE to network but unable to ping or SSH or HTTPS to ACE. Everything seems good. ARP is ok, switch is OK, line is up, protocol is up. Management is enabled for icmp, https, ssh to any.
When I do show interface I noticed line Config download failures : 9.

I am configuring a load balancer from cisco, a ACE 4710.Load blancing is completely new to me, and i am unexpereinced in this field. It has to be configured for a customer that want to load balance HTTP and RTSP traffic over 4 application servers (Back-end),I searched alot on google for possible solutions, and got RTSP in some way to work, but http wont work says my customer.
I have two ACE-4710 in active/standby mode, running code A3(2.2). Four contexts are configured. Both devices were functional without problem, until I reload the standby unit. After reload, the standby unit completely lost its configuration with exception of the FT vlan and the FT peer configuration in the Admin context... Both units recognized each-other and I can still ping the primary unit on the FT vlan, but nothing else. Contexts are lost and interfaces are shutdown! Nothing changed at the software level, both devices run exactly the same image and the same licences are installed (it worked well before the reload).
So, I decided to reconfigure the basics on the standby unit in order to trigger a config sync from the primary. And here arrives the problem : I reconfigure the FT vlan, the FT peer, I check the peer state and everything is OK.
Then, I try to ping the primary unit from the standby unit with success :
switch/Admin# ping 192.168.16.1 Pinging 192.168.16.1 with timeout = 2, count = 5, size = 100 .... Response from 192.168.16.1 : seq 1 time 0.000 ms
I am looking at management (backup of the configuration) of the ACE 4710 running A4.1, the management software is Cisco Cirrus. The question I have is around the management of the context's, I have a backup of the Admin but would like the user context's also, how this is completed.
Have two ACE 4710 in HA setup. We would like to setup HTTPS loadbalance(actually just a primary and standby configuration in the serverfarm). Initially this would be for Exchange OWA connections but may expand to more HTTPS connections later. I know there are several ways to do SSL with the ACE( client, server, end-to-end). I am just wanting to know the easiest way to deploy this? Is a certificate always needed on the ACE for each connection? In HA mode would a certificate be needed for both or does it replicate in some way to the other ACE?
When trying to view the status in the Monitor tab and the Config tab after you log in to the ACE 4710 Device Manager A5 (1.2) management GUI tool, I could not retrieve the status data and the following message appeared.
"Faild to upload Adimn configuration: There is error in loading configuration: Error in loading RMO config from DB:The given index XXXXXXXXX.bak does not match table index definition"
Other features include all normal, so I can get information by using the CLI.In addition, this configuration is redundant in the Primary / Secondary, this event occurs only on the Primary.
Other:-XXXXXXXXX.bak is a backup that you created in the checkpoint, and it does not already exist.
-When I'm logged on to the GUI, the above message is displayed in the status bar always.
-It was not recovered by ACE restart it.
-When I try to create the same configuration in a different environment, it did not reproduce.
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.
When I connect to my router via the default gateway IP address I no longer have access to the configuration options. It just brings up the recovery tool. It will assign IP addresses when I connect via cat 5, but it will not broadcast an SSID. I have tried updating the firmware, but even after running the update it just takes me to the recovery tool. The only options I have are update firmware or reboot. I thought about using DD-WRT, but this particular router is on the black list for that particular firmware option.
Is there any tool or script which will automatically generate scripts for routers, switches. I am configuring 100's of cisco 3700 routers and 3500 switches. I want to be consistent with my configuration . I am looking for script that when u run it, it will prompt you step by step to configure router, and switch and generate router config file. I know aobut cisco autoconfig maker but thats not what i am looking for.
i'm looking for a recommendation for a setup guide including ft i've had a quick look a wiki and i can get basics but i'm not sure about if i need to setup additional contexts etc when i'm the only one using the appliance?
I have an issue with a customer that wants to update a server behind the ACE. The problem is that when the application wants to update the server it does it with the name.Doing some research I found that you can rewrite the record DNS based on the static NAT you set up on the ACE. The feature is called DNS inspection. Is the same feature as the ASA (DNS doctoring).I apply it to the outside interface and it did not work.
With the current (A5) ACE 4710 lic setup, does the "X gigabit per second appliance throughput" that is licensed affect: -
A) Only "appliance" i.e. load balancing traffic, any other normal routed traffic is not included in the limit
B) Is it an overall throughput limit on the interfaces i.e. includes all traffic not only load balancing traffic but also normal routed traffic crossing the appliance
Looking at a scenario where the lic size I need for HTTP load balanacing would be one size if A) but would need to be much larger is B) to accomodate out of hours routed backup traffic crossing the ACE 4710
I've got a web app that the owners want to run over port 80, but also using SSL to secure private data in transit. The architecture is an ACE 4710 in SSL termination mode->Apache (port 2000)->Back-End app server.
I've got two VIPs set up already - one on port 443 and one on 2000 - both of which do the SSL termination quite nicely, but using the 3rd VIP set up on port 80, the connection steadfastly refuses to be HTTPS (i.e. doesn't show the padlock).
I've done all the set-up through the web interface so far, can this be done? If so, how?
I am currently running A3(2.6) and evaluate the possibility of upgrading to A4(2.1). The Instal & Upgrade Guide A4(2.0) mentions that A4(2.0) does not include all features of A4(1.1). Does this apply to A4(2.1)? The Release Notes mentions a list of features merged from A4(1.1) to A4(2.1) but does not clarify if there any features not merged.
we configued An ACE 4710 with SSL termination on Oracle Aplication Server 10g (10.1.2.0.2) ,so that SSL termination is done on the ACE and HTTP reaches the Oracle Aplication Server 10g (10.1.2.0.2) then we configure the ACE to enabled client authentication with Pkcs#11 smart card token certificate and this don succfully my problem need do this client certificate authentication for only the [URL] not for all SSL proxy service how can do that.
We have recently transitioned one of our Ecommerce products to a new data center, at which we now use a one-armed load balancing approach rather then the routed load balancing approach we used previously. This is casuing us some issues as we generally log the source IP address a user comes in on when he fills out an application. Now the logs only show the natted ip address recieved by the load balancer, which does us no good. Any way to log the source IP address when a new connection is created to a particular vip?
If we use an ACE4710 to load balance two real servers, obviously it will use health checks to determine if a server is down.When it detects a server is down, it will not send it any more traffic.But can we also have it take any other action? For example maybe email an admin, or send an SNMP trap? Or better yet, can we use a custom TCL script to do other things, like launch some custom activities?
I am new to the 4710 appliance.Apart from the 4 GE 'data' ports, there are 2 Ethernet 'management' ("console") ports. I find the description in the "quick start guide"somewhat confusing. URL, Is a first-time serial connection (at least to run the initial config. script) mandatory? Or can you obtain the same result via one of the 2 Ethernet management ports and using a default ip address (192.168.1.10 ? When running the initial config. script (only possible from the serially connected console i suppose), you have to select your management port. Why does the system in step 5 proposes you 4 ports, and not just 2? I suppose the intended port for management is one of the 2 management ports, not one of the 4 data ports?
I have a pair of ACE 4710s with 12 contexts sharing the load, running A4(2.1). esterday I upgraded one of them to A4(2.3) now I cannot telnet to the Admin context.Pings ok. I can telnet to other contexts on the box and everything seems to be working ok when i do a " sh telnet" comes back with
No Session Information is available sh telnet maxsessions telnet maxsessions 16
ACE# sh script code NORDICID_PROBE.Error: Called API is invalid or non-existant.Hardware is ACE-4710-K9 and software A3(2.7)The probe itself is functioning ok according to show probe detail.However show script script_name probe_name -counters all remain at zero for some reason. This wasn't the case on the previously use ACE software.To my recollection the command show script code has worked successfully before on the same ACE software. Not 100% sure though, but it definitely worked on the previous software we ran on the ACE.
