Cisco Application Networking :: How To Setup New ACE 4710 Device
Mar 17, 2013
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
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 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'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 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 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?
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?
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.
The installation of an ACE-4710 throughput upgrade license licence (ACE-AP-02-UP1) failed with an error message :CH01AC03/Admin# license install disk0:ACE20111213081741975.lic.Installing license... failed: No space left on device. [code]
I have setup load-balancing on an ACE 4710 for HTTP for Sharepoint 2010. The Server Admin says that the IIS server will recognize the right site by DNS name. Problem is I have no clue how to make sure the servers get the DNS name passed to them. They says this is for a multi-homing setup so that we can run multiple sites using the same VIP to the same Serverfarm. How do I do this? I keep getting the IIS splash page since the real server cannot determine the IIS site that I am supposed to access.
This is how it looks in the configuration:
class-map type http loadbalance match-any WWW.SITENAME.COM:80_STATIC_NOT_COMPRESSABLE 10 match http url .*.xico class-map type http loadbalance match-any WWW.SITENAME.COM:80_STATIC_COMPRESSABLE 10 match http url .*.xjs 20 match http url .*.xcss class-map type http loadbalance match-any WWW.SITENAME.COM:80_DEFAULT 10 match http url .*
Questions are: Why do I see things being compressed when there is only being accounted hits in a compression:off class ?Why does enabling compression in one class (never being hit) cause hits in other clases to be compressed ?
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?
