Cisco Application Networking :: ACE 4710 Test Web Servers / Need To Use ACE As Their Default Gateway
May 26, 2011
I'm setting up an ACE 4710 in our test lab before deploying in production. Do the test web servers I am using need to use the ACE as their default gateway? The are currently configured to use a multilayer switch on their vlan as their gateway but I'm guessing the ACE needs to see the return traffic for load balancing to work correctly?
I'm looking for a way to configure Cisco ACE4710 loadbalancer to bypass traffic that is initiated from server side to Internet?Are there any way to configure this, so that the loadbalancer will not maintain session for this bypass traffic to maximize throughput?
The below is the display that I get on the screen when i boot the device.There are two error's one is when the daughter card is found and device give us login access after which it reboot’s. The second is stated below (this is a screen copy of the error)
INIT: version 2.85 booting/mnt/cf/TN-CONFIG on /TN-CONFIG type ext3 (rw,sync,loop=/dev/loop0)/mnt/cf/TN-CERTKEY-STORAGE on /TN-CERTKEY-STORAGE type ext3 (rw,sync,loop=/dev/loop1)/mnt/cf/TN-LOGFILE on /TN-LOGFILE type ext3 (rw,sync,loop=/dev/loop2)/mnt/cf/TN-HOME on /TN-HOME type ext3 (rw,sync,loop=/dev/loop3)/mnt/cf/TN-COREFILE on /TN-COREFILE type ext3 (rw,sync,loop=/dev/loop4)insmod: error inserting [Code]...
I need to setup new ACE 4710 device , after referring to "Establishing a Console Connection on the ACE" i had managed to set up initial console connection. During installtion i had configured vlan (default vlan 1000) , interface ip adess& subnet mask.
Post initial config i understand i should be able to open' Device Manager GUI Login Window' but it is not opening.I also need inputs on setting 4710 for the telnet connection
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 a 4710 appliance (one armed) and i am load balancing with two webservers. In the URL, there are links that need to be redirected to https:
i am using the
rserver redirect REDIRECT-TO-HTTPS[URL]
The https is working but i have a problem. when i access the Main link "first" it is redirected to https to the Main link.But if i access one of the Sublinks directly(without having to click on the main link first) the page is redirected to https but to the Main Link. i have to click the Sublink again in order to get the page.How can i redirect to https and stay on the same page? What might be the general link in the webserver-redirection?
We have deployed an ACE 4710 and its working perfectly. But the problem is that after I chage the default gateway of the servers I am not able to transfer files from one server to other. Is there any special configuration needs to be done on ACE to achieve this?Other than copy Ping, telnet and everything is working fine from the servers. These servers are in the same subnet & VLAN.
We have two ACE4710 in a failover configuration with Software version A4(2.0). SNMP is setup and the receiver is able to receive SNMP traps.The issue is we are receiving a linkDown trap notification at least once every other day, followed shortly by a linkUp notification a minute later. We have checked all layer 2 devices connected to the ACE and cannot see any evidence that any link actually disconnected. We experienced no traffic lost, but this could be because a couple of the ACE links are bundled. The trap notification does not actually indicate which interface changed status. All links are Gigabits, and there are no packet drops either on the ACE or the layer 2 switch.
We are having issues with our Cisco ACE 4710, it suddenly stopped to telnet admin context.We are able to telnet another context from the same appliance, but unable to telnet the admin context. Is possible to pings the gateways from the other contexts, but we are not able to ping the gateway from the admin context.Actual we have 5 context with the minimum allocation is 10%.ACL and policy map allowing telnet and etc are enable and configured on the interface.
We want to mask part of the path prefix to hide development content: For example: the site(s) are: [URL]However we don't want anything with acme showing...so we would want the loadbalanced url to be: [URL] ...for requests and responses. I think this would be an http re-write request/response scenario?Is this possible to configure this on the ACE Device? We've got the load balance configuration down...not sure how to do this re-write type scenario?
Our Exchange 2010 hub servers run multiple services/ports: smtp, www, pop3,135, 143, https, 993, 995, 6001,6002,6003,60200,60201,8400, and 8402 what is the best way of balancing these servers so that if only one of the services failed on a server, it would switch only the failed service to remaining servers. At present I only use an smtp probe, so as log as that sevrice is running the server is marked good.
Client is having 1 file server running small business windows server 2003. Server is not configured with domain, it is working only on workgroup. We have around 15 users who are using that server as file server only. Now my main question is do i need to configure DNS server in that server?we also have internet connection running (have problem in that also, will explain next time) with wireless router to connected with switch. So do I need to setup dns in server also or just put static ip (I prefer static then dhcp) & dns server from ip will be ok? If I put dns which I got from ISP, so will it create any problem with using those file from server?the second question is..
What IP address, Default gateway and dns address I should use for Server & also client pc. router ip - 192.168.1.1 server ip - 192.168.1.10 Currently no DNS setupcurrent configuration - Server IP - 192.168.1.10 subnet- 255.255.255.0 gateway - 192.168.1.1 dns - 184.108.40.206 (from ISP) dns2 - xxx.xx.xx.xx (from ISP)current configuration - Client IP - 192168.1.111(to 115) subnet - 255.255.255.0 gateway - 192.168.1.1 dns 1 - 192.168.1.10 (File Server) dns 2 - 220.127.116.11 (from ISP)
ipconfig /all reports one of my three DNS servers as 192.168.1.1. My Default Gateway and DHCP Server are also reported as 192.168.1.1. This is from a recently installed Valet M10 updating an old Linksys router. The Linksys reported the three DNS servers octets independent of the router's ip and other default settings.JK
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 am used to lan testing with QCheck and Passmark's Performance Test (Network Test). But recently I upgraded to a 10 GbE switch (Netgear M7100), and it broke QCheck; basically, QCheck gave me an infinity as the result of my throughput test. Passmark performed fine, but it's just a hassle to use (or at least it's not as straight forward as QCheck).
Is there another free tool for network lan speed tests? Or is there a really cheap tool for it?Let's say I have less than 20 devices to test on.I've already tried Totusoft's lan speed test and find that its free version is useless.I'm having an itch write my own software now, but if it comes to that, I'd rather pay for a cheap software.Spent too much money on upgrading already - switches, servers, and computers)
how do I set up a test domain? I'm running Server 2008 std and have not gotten the DNS server configured right. I'm looking for a guide to take me through the process so I can experience success and get the feel of a working LAN.
I have 2 CSS, 1 as primary and 2nd as standby. I configured the standby CSS as my old standby CSS box and now wanted to test the faliover. I am not aware of how to test it in. ny how i have cr for that.
I have a Dell inspiron 1545 laptop, which will not connect to my BT homehub, I know it is not the hub as can connect with my old PC. I ran a connections diagnostics test and it failed at IP Gateway ping.
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
