Cisco Application :: ACE 4710 Source Ip Address In Logging
Mar 21, 2013
I've configured the ACE4710 to bring the logging to a syslog server! Here's the configuration
I saw to log with connection on the syslog server but It would be interesting to know the "source ip address" and my question is : It may be possible to configure for the logging a kind of "transparent pass through"?
Im having a (from google-fu) seemingly unique issue with load balancing. So for background, I am running the ACE 4710 device in "on a stick" mode, so I am using NAT and all that good stuff. I am also utilizing class maps and host header matching so I can save on IP space. [code]
Basically, as soon as I add that ACL_CLASS_beta.mainsite.com class map, all I get back from the ACE is RST packets and it comes back with an L7 LB Policy Miss.
It SEEMS like it should work, but it doesnt seem to like matching on those source addresses at all.
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.
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?
I hav ACE 4710, I am trying to configure a policy in which when specific Client tries to access the specific Destination. ACE should not send the traffic to load balancing. It should directly send to the next Hop.
I configred the below but didnt able to achieve my object.
access-list source_IP line 8 extended permit ip host 192.168.146.123 host 198.xx.xx.2 class-map match-all CM_BYPASS_SOURCE 2 match access-list source_IP
policy-map type loadbalance http first-match PM_L7_BYPASS_SOURCE class class-default forward
But I am not able to reach to destination. MY source traffic is still diverting to the Load balancing server. I dont want it to redirect to LB server
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 have a requirement to bypass some specific traffic (with particular source to specific internet destination) in ACE 4710.
All the webtraffic (http and https) is configured to loadbalance to my proxies , i need to configure some specific traffic with source and destiantion to internet to byepass from this loadbalancing and directly got to outside interface .
I have a problem with an ACE 4710 regarding to the ping of especially one VIP address.
At the Box I setup 10 Servcies, all with different VIP addresses, also the IP is not used duplicate somewhere in the network.
in the class defined under Policy-Map Multi-Match I setup identical to the others loadbalance vip icmp-replay active, the VIP is usable by the defined service http, the serverfarm is up and running all ok so far but this VIP does not respond to ping even the correct arp resolution was done.
I started also a capture locally on the ACE and see the ICMP - Echo coming in, but the box sends no echo-reply back.
In the access-lists Management and so on I allowed icmp and also on all interfaces the icmp guard is disabled...
I have recently configured a pair of ACE 4710 appliances in a FT group. The ACE's are deployed in one-arm mode, using Source NAT, with all routing to and from being done by a pair of PIX firewalls.
My configuration does not include the use of an "alias" IP address on the data VLAN interface within each of my contexts.
My understanding is that the "alias" IP address is similar to a HSRP address and if the ACE is deployed in Routed mode the default gateway for the servers can be configured with the "alias" address so as this is always available even if a fail over occurs.
if this is a correct interpretation and of use of the "alias" IP address and if so whether it is required when using a one-arm mode topology?
I've got email logging for a few specific syslog messages working and sending to an email server on the inside network. However, the source IP ends up being the DMZ interface. Is there a way to force it to use the inside IP instead?
ASA Code Version 7.22 Inside Interface IP: 10.104.36.4 Mask:255.255.255.0 DMZ IP: 10.100.20.1 Mask:255.255.255.0 SMTP Server IP: 10.100.10.100
Logging commands in config:
logging enable logging list email-alerts message 106100 logging mail email-alerts logging from-address ASA@xyz.com logging recipient-address firstname.lastname@example.org level debugging
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 not sure if my terminology is correct when using hairpinning but i was wondering if there is any special config needed when you try to access a content rule VIP from a server that's configured as a member of a source group on the same CSS?
So say i have a content rule with a VIP 188.8.131.52 and i also have two servers 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2 that are part of a source group with VIP of 184.108.40.206. My problem at the moment is if from the servers 192.168.1.x i try to ping the other VIP 220.127.116.11 that's configured on the same CSS then it doesn't work and ping fails. The same happens with HTTP traffic to the 18.104.22.168 VIP.
I would have thought that the NAT of the source group would happen before the routing so the 192.168.1.x IP's would be natted to 22.214.171.124 and then passed over for routing where the CSS would see that the VIP 126.96.36.199 is local and it would send it on it's way.
I thought it might be ACL related but i increased the verbosity of acl logging and couldn't see anything in the logs.The source group works fine on it's own and from the CSS itself i can ping the 188.8.131.52 VIP fine. It just seems that from the source group members i can't ping the VIP.
ACE A2(3.4). Is it possible to set a rate-limit connections per sec from any source IP. For example, if a client is trying to GET a web page 10 time per sec I will send a reset or drop that connection.
i don't know why cu need this feature, he want stickiness based on source ip and source port. Does CSS 11500 support stickiness based on source IP and source port?or is there any other method to support stickness based on source ip and sourceport?
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.
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.
