Cisco Application Networking :: Using WAVE-294-K9 As Central Manager
Mar 21, 2012
I'm working on a small scale Cisco WAAS deployment. I want to know if it's possible to use the entry level Cisco WAVE-294-K9 as Central Manager.Also about licensing, does this appliance model come with the enterprise level license
I'm running v4.3.5 in our WAAS environment. At the CLI of one of our 7341 WAEs, there are several connections that show up [code] However, in the Central Manager nothing shows up - not even empty graphs - when I click on a device and go to monitor/connections statistics. After a few minutes, I do get an error message that states "Error retrieving connection stats. Please ensure that the device is online and then refresh." By the way, I get all other statics in the GUI such as Optimization Details Report, Traffic Summary Report, etc. Another thing, these WAEs are behind a router and supposedly the ports to allow access to/from the WAEs and other data is allowed through the firewall.
Is there some special port that needs to be opened on the firewall to allow for 'connection statistics' information displayed, that doesn't need to be opened for the other statistics to display? Or could this be a bug in the software?
I've got basic connectivty to our ACE30 module and when I try connecting to the management IP address (attached to the Admin context), I see a very basic GUI which only lists the CSM to ACE config conversion tool. I don't see a GUI as detailed in the document: url...How do I get the ACE Applicance Device Manager GUI working so that I can then configure real servers, serverfarms etc rather than via the GUI?Having read through copious amount of documentation I can't seem to find a refrence that would ne useful here. This should be a fairly straight forward exercise - do I need to install some other software to get the full fledged GUI working?
In a cluster of redundant ACE-4710, version A5(1.2), the graphical Device Manager on the primary ACE cannot authenticate users. An error message is displayed :The strange thing is that the standby ACE Device Manager work correctly. Moreover, both ACE are perfectly synchronized :
CH01AC03/P-115-A# sh ft group summary
FT Group : 14 Configured Status : in-service Maintenance mode : MAINT_MODE_OFF My State : FSM_FT_STATE_ACTIVE My Config Priority : 200
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.
I have a problem in the ACE 4710. In view of the connections of a web environment. When I view connections on Config> Operations> Real Servers, Conns column values appear very high connections (Example. 1606317769078).Already in Config> Operations> Virtual Server the number of connections appear normal. Version 4710 ACE Device manger A4 (2.1a)
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?.
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)

Do you know if it is possible in ACE 4710 appliance to configure a SIP TLS ?The SIP probe we have in the configuration guide it is only for clear text. for Lync 2013 we need to establish first a TLS session and then within it, send an SIP request..IS it possible in any version? I tried also to configure a HTTPS probe but it fails as it sends a GET which the Lync SIP server doesn't understand.
I want to use the ACE blade in CAT6500 to loadbalancing SYSLOG events towards (SIEM) collectors. Servers and network devices will sent there syslog messages to different collectors after being loadbalanced by ACE. I was just wondering, since a lot of clients are going to sent there complete syslog events to the VIP and thus introducing a high connection rate. (+/- 200.000 CPS) According to the specs, the ACE blade has a limitation of 325.000 connection per second. I suppose this is a limitation at device level. (not on a per context basis, and does that include both TCP and UDP packets?) Could the UDP BOOST feature might come in handy allowing very high rate UDP syslog packet loadbalancing?
We are evaluating the one-arm design for the ACE 4700 and need some clarifications:
1. Are there any limitations in the one-arm design and the SSL offloading
2. Can the ACE be configured with an IN and an OUT vlan to the router
CLIENT -> Router -> ACE IN -> ACE OUT -> Router -> Server Vlan
so that the SSL and the clear text traffic is in a separate Vlan?
3. In some sample configuration i saw SNAT configuration on the ACE to modify the client IP. This i assume is for instructing the return traffic from the server to go through ACE? Using SNAT we eliminate the requirement for NAT or PBR on the router? Will i still be able to insert the client IP address after the SSL offload?
We have multiple CSS 11500 clusters. We have found that on all of them, if you try to open a session on any port to an IP address on the backend of the CSS, the CSS will complete the SYN-ACK-ACK session with the client. This happens regardless of whether there is something on that IP address or not.
Coming from any IP, if I try to telnet to ANY IP on the 10.2.2.0 subnet (whether or not there is an actual server on that IP) on any port (whether or not that port is open or not), the CSS will complete the initial connection. I have verified this using telnet to numerous ports and viewing the transaction in a packet capture.
Is there any way to shut this off? This is causing some licensing issues for our security folks that use a vulnerability scanner licensed on number of IP addresses.
One of our ACE-20's crash recently with little info as to why - fortunately it was the FT standby module so service wasn't impacted but obviously keen to determine the cause of the crash, and potential resolution.
Running A2 (3.5).
last boot reason: NP 1 Failed : NP Core Reset - Cause Unknown,There is nothing obvious from the switch perspective:

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
We have a CSS11503 that is currently being used to accept incoming HTTPS and SSH connections on a specific VIP and then PAT those client connections. I understand that it also PATs the server initiated connections. [code]
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.
How do I apply the connection parameter map in a configuration like this to the service policy int827? Do I need to define the traffic? Can I specify only one source destination flow to apply the set tcp half-closed TCP normalization against?

For server load balancing, does the ACE4710 support custom protocols? We'll be using HTTP for server health monitoring, and to determine if a server is up or down. But the client/server application is custom, and includes a lot of non-standard ports. Can the server VIP handle generic TCP connections? For example client1 connects to the VIP on http, but then later client1 switches to using tcp842 (a custom protocol, not http).
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.
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?
do you know what happens if you reach the limit of, for instance 100 Mbps, compression. I know that if you reach the bandwidth limit ACE will drop packets but if you configure compression what happens if you have 110 Mbps.
I supossed that ACE will compress 100 Mbps and leave 10 Mbps without compression but I don't find this information anywhere.
