Cisco Application :: ACE 4710 Inline VS One-armed Based
Apr 3, 2012
I have 2 basic questions I am having doubts about it and would love to have some clarifications:
1) I configure in one ACE4710 (running 4.2.2) context a bridged interface and in another context the same interface, like here below : [code] Then I move to the Juniper context and I try to create an interface (either L-2 or L-3) but it doesn’t work: [code] So if I configure an interface as bridged in one Context, I cannot configure it in another context??
2) If I want to migrate in context Microsoft from One-armed to inline (L-2 bridged), can I migrate one service at the time ( I.e. the config i showed above for context Microsoft, would it work also for one-armed based???)
We have ACE 4710, It is configured with IP based stickiness and working fine for a web application server (BMC Remedy). We tried configuring cookie based stickiness for the same server. Server application is having JSESSIONID.But after configuring cookie based stickiness, there is an issue that the first page is coming for entering login credentials and after entering it the page is blank or not responding. What is the pre-requirement for configuring cookie based stickiness in ACE for BMC Remedy web application and which type of cookie based stickiness is suitable or possible?
I have a requirement to select a farm based on source IP address. I tried creating a match all class-map that matches on the virtual-address and source address but I get this message.LB01/Admin(config-cmap)# match source-address x.x.x.75 255.255.255.255 Error: Only one match virtual-address is allowed in a match-all class-map and it cannot mix with any other match type To me this is the only place where it makes sense to set the source match criteria.
I am trying to configure ACE 4710 to load balance base on the URL, If it matches the specific URL ( /456/ ), the traffic will be sent to server farm 456 else the traffic will be sent to server farm 123.
I attached an image of the topology.
rserver host SRV01_123 ip address 192.168.1.101 inservice
I have a new deployment I am working on. I am unclear on the Inline setup. One location is configured as a trunk between the router and the switch, with voice and data traffic going through it. We will be installing a 294 inline at this site.What impact will it have on voice traffic? We are using G0/0 for management, not the Inline interfaces. Is that any additional configuraiton needed to inline if done this way? I didn't get prompted for vlan ID, or anything like that during the setup as an accelerator.Are these setup with default optimizations out of the box, or is there additional programming needed once they are online? I found where to build custom applications, but wonder if there is anything needed to be done once they are online for default traffic.
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.
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.
We have two pairs of ACE 4710s, one pair running A3(2.4) and the other pair A3(2.0). We plan to upgarde the second pair so that they are running the same image as the first pair (we know they are not the latest, but this is the first step in a larger rollout plan, and to aid some troublshooting for a major issue we are seeing.)
I have details of the upgrade steps, but my question is with regards to the licenses which are now enforced after (2.0). We currently have the following on the first pair, but are these part of the default licenses for (2.4) or would we need to purchase these as well?
I need to use the Ace 4710 to distribute a Proxy PAC file, e.g. [URL] which will be configured in client browser using an AD group policy. Is it possible for the ACE to host and serve a file in this way?
Can the Nat Pool be on a different network that the load balanced vip? My current design uses nat pool on the same network, but the archatect wants the NATs on seperate VLAN.I will be developing on ACE MOD20, but the final configuration will be on 4710.
I configured ACE 4710 for HTTP traffic. All applications are running through real server. But when I run the same applications from virtual IP i.e through ACE. some applications are not running. Particularly applications having XML.
Is it ACE issue or Application issue. If it is ACE issue then how to troubleshot.
i have ACE 4710 appliance that terminate SSL and the connection to the servers is http.
The ACE (one Armed) is load balancing between two web servers and i am using stickness in order to take the connection on the same server based on cookie.I can access the website either by http or https., where on the web page there is a login credential to access using username and password.
When i access the website using https everything works fine and i can login to my account in https mode.When i access the website through http and login to my account the URL is redirected to https...normal because i am using action-list to rewrite the http into https. But when i exit the browser and access the website again using http it is not redirected to https(although i see that i am still login into my account i can see all the inforamtion in my account).
The customer wants the connection to be https even when i exit the browser and access the website again (within short time before the cookie exipres)
I have a Cisco ACE with a server farm "intranet" with real servers rsrv1 and rsrv2 (round robin) and i have two sites A (IP Address A) and B (IP Address B) in the WAN. I want to that Site A conect to ACE 4710 via VIP, but this connection will be to srv1 and Site B conect to ACE 4710 via VIP, but this connection will be to srv2.
