Cisco Application :: ACE Upgrade From A3 2.0 To A4 2.7
Jan 23, 2012
Is it possible to upgrade ACE 4710 from A3 to A4? What does this actualy means by A3, A4 & A5.
I want to upgrade ACE from A3 to A4 becase I want to enable switch-mode on ACE. Current S/W version is A3 2.0 which is not supporting this command. While reffering the command refernce guide saw that this command is supported in A2 & A4 version from 2.0 itself but for A3 in 2.7 (which is the latest) also this is not supporting this feature.
We are currently running ANM server version 4.1. I am trying to upgrade to version 5.1. But when I run the "application upgrade anm-va-5.1.ova Upgrade" command, I receive an error that states: "Manifest file not found in the bundle".I then tried to run the install command with the same error.
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.
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
I need to upgrade 2 active-standby cisco ACE4710, the issue is I cannot access FTP/TFTP/SFTP server via Admin context but can be accessible via other contexts.
Can I copy the ACE system software file from FTP/SFTP/TFTP server to image: directory durectly or need some other way around ? I could see the option is available to copy ftp: to image: via other context.
Upgrading a 4710. This is a brand new ACE out of the box and I have tried to upgrade a couple of times but get the same error... Here are the details:

And it keeps going on with this message. I also tried tftp and I get the same thing:

I'm trying to upgrade my ACS 5.3 (patch 7) to ACS 5.4 and I've downloaded the application bundle from Cisco. I'm transferring the app bundle via FTP towards the VM containing ACS, yet I ALWAYS get %Manifest File not found in bundle. I've opened the bundle and found the manifest .xml inside.
I've double verified MD5 checks, size files, re-downloaded everything, even copied it to the local disk of the appliance. Also browsed through this forum to see that there are people having the same problem with other ACS version upgrades and besides re-downloading and using FTP there isn't a specific solution. I'm always getting this error. I know that it must be possible to do upgrade, but I'm stuck. I do see on the FTP server logs that the file gets transferred, but as pretty much as soon as it finishes transferring (not enough time in my view to extract a 1.2 GB file) I get an error
I'm doing the:
application upgrade ACS_184.108.40.206.tar.gz FTP (...) %Manifest file not found in the bundle
We are running ACE 20 modules in highly available active / standby (all active contexts on one module) mode. Currently they are on A2 (2.4) version. We are going to upgrade them to A2 (3.6a). The question is that how ling can we run them in two different SW levels? In otherwords can we have few days between upgrading both modules?
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 have two Windows 7 computers and neither one will successfully upgrade a 1242 AP to LWAP. However, I go to a coworker's XP machine and run the tool without issues. On Windows 7 I keep receiving the error message of ACL or Firewall is blocking. I have added rules and then even tried disabling the firewalls completely on both computers and still no success.
I am taking an introduction class to CCNA and we are focusing on the Application Layer,and I'm having some difficulty in understanding what is an Application Layer Service. Is the Application Layer Service the same as Application Layer Software?
Is it possible to upgrade the CSACS-1121-UP-K9 to be a non upgrade part? We were going to upgrade from a Windows 4.x to the above Appliance (version 5.x) but there is now a reason to keep the old Windows version running therefore we cannot give the new Appliance the old ACS's licenses?!So we should have (with hindsight) bought a fresh version of the ACS 5.x rather than an upgrade.
We've got an application that broke after upgrading our ACEs from A5(2.1) to A5(2.2); the problem lies in how the ACE handles URLs with embedded backslash characters in them - e.g.: URL
Prior to the upgrade the ACE would forward these to the back-end servers; after the upgrade the ACE resets the client connection. (We're doing SSL offload on the ACE; the back-end connection is HTTP over port 80, only the client-side traffic is over SSL.)
Some browsers will convert these to percent-encoded form - i.e. URL
and things work for these; but other browsers won't do this. So I'd like to set up a rewrite rule in the ACE that will replace any (or at least the first) '' with the string '%5C'. Just how to do this isn't clear from the command ref, and the config guide is a tad shy on similar examples.
As per CISCO QoS document URL, IOS from 12.2(13)T support drop command in policy map. But our CISCO ASR 1013 having IOS of Version 15.2(1)S1 doesn't have drop syntax.How can we drop specific application using QoS in ASR 1013 of IOS version 15.2 and higher?,Can I allow few users for a particular application (like P2P) and drop other users based on users source IP?
I want to deploy a high availability solution for web servers in two data centers. In the primary data center I have deployed a group of web server and I want two deploy additional servers in a secondary data center for disaster recovery and high availability. Reviewing the documentation, looks like the GSS4492 is the solution for my company needs but I am not sure if I have to implement just the GSS or if I need a ACE4700 integrated with the GSS?.
I am having two sites, at one site the ISP is terminated on 2900 Router and at one site ISP is terminated on 3500 L3 Switch. Now need to configure the IP SLA on this. In the current setup I am having two 2900 routers at one location and 3500 L3 switches which by point to point link.
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.
I face an issue while creating source nat on cisco ACE. There is already a default source nat ip for the context. I created a new one for smtp traffic alone. Iam facing issues in prefixing the newly created nat-pool rule(nat-pool 100) above the default one (nat-pool 2257) on the external gateway interface as its not placing that on top ,due to which only the default snat ip is getting shown on all servers.
