I am in the process of testing VA5(1.2) version of ACE on ACE4710 appliance.I did redundnacy configuration and it is working fine.I have done the snmp configuration and SNMP trap receiver is able to recieve traps like link up/down, so it proves that SNMP configuration is working fine, but i am not able to generate the SNMP trap notification for "clrRedundancyStateChange".I tried two things:
1) Via CLI, ran the command "ft switchover all" and i could see redundancy state changes.
2) Powered down Active 4710 appliance and standby ACE 4710 appliance taking over as Active.
However, none of the above could generate the trap clrRedundancyStateChange. how this trap can be generated? In snmp-server enable traps commands doesn't have any option for enabling FT related traps.
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.
So for example rserver1 and rserver2 are put in serverfarm production1 and are in use with particular sticky and load balancing settings.
Can I then create serverfarm test_production and put both rserver1 and rserver2 in it? Then play around with the sticky and load balancing settings as a test without affecting the production serverfarm.
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 have a Cisco ACE 4710 A5(1.2). Scenario: Inbound call from PSTN to SIP Phone. Call comes into the VIP and then load balances to sip server, the server then routes the call out via WAN to the SIP phone as below:
Note: Router is Cisco 3925 with "ip nat service sip udp port 5060" and Port 5060 mapped to the VIP of the ACE.If I put the sip server directly behind the router it works fine. From behind the ACE:
If I turn on sip inspect on the VIP the call setup (INVITE) and termination (BYE) work fine but the audio loops on the PSTN side from the mic to the speaker.If I turn OFF sip inspect then the audio is fine and mapped correctly but the call terminaton (SIP BYE) hits the VIP from the PSTN but never reaches the sip server.For ease and dianostics, I have turned off all sip servers except one meaning the load-balancer has only one server to choose from.SIP Call_id sticky is setup and seems to work, though irrelevent with one server only on test.How do I get the ACE to accept 'server initiated traffic' with sip inspect so it knows about the pending BYE when it comes back from the IP phone via the VIP?Config below, image attached. Bridged mode (also get the same result in routed mode)

configure Cisco Ace 4710 ?Note :- Just a testing face I need to access my one server(192.168.1.11 : 80) through VIP :- 10.13.77.10 , I have only one Cisco Router 2800 and One L2 Cisco Switch 2960 and Cisco Ace 4710 . So I already configured 2 Different VLANS in Switch (Vlan 10 & Vlan 100) and by router I given the ip address of that Vlans with Inter Routing Vlan. My Connectivity is like this :-- Router Ethernet 0/0 --- 10.13.77.1/24 with vlan 10) & Router Ethernet 0/1 ---- 192.168.1.1/24 with vlan 100 ) connected with switch after that I configured ACE LB and connect the ACE interface with switch Like that ---- Connect to ACE Interface 2/3 vlan10 with switch vlan10(Ethernet port 2-12) and Connect to ACE Interface 3/3 vlan100 with switch vlan100(Ethernet port 13-24) .Testing to access server from Switch Vlan10 to Vlan 100 where my server is there.
ACE> client side Vlan10 (10.13.77.4/24) , VIP :- 10.13.77.10, SM-- 255.255.255.255 ACE> server side Vlan100 (192.168.1.5/24), Web server -- 192.168.1.11 with 80 port ACE> Managment Vlan 1000 (172.16.6.5/24) , ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.13.77.1
I already Configured in Routed mode but From Vlan10 ip subnet example like 10.13.77.12(Client or User PC) tried to access server 192.168.1.11 with VIP http://10.13.77.10 but not responding , if i access server with real IP then accessible (why boz there is inter vlan routing)?
Access Server through VIP (ACE 4710) but very slow
Accessing the server very slow.., check my real configuration... this configuration is for application server and after this i have to configure more serverfarm for different server like webmail etc. in this ACE 4710. I have only one ACE 4710 .
ACE Version A4(2.0) = is there supports Probe with this version? without probe server will work but very slow.
VIP :-- 172.16.15.8 LB/Admin# sh run Generating configuration....
We have two Cisco ACE 4710 and we want to install both of the devices in HA with load balancing mode.While i have done HA mode configuration between ACE 4710.But unable to configure load balancing configuration between them.i want to tell you connectivity between server,client & loadbalancer.Our Web servers are connected to VLAN 152 on the L3 (3750) switch.Which are alreday working in redundancy between other L3.And ACE 4710 it is also connected to vlan 150 which are connected to same L3 (3750) switches and users are also connected to vlan 6 on the same L3 itself.
I am getting these unwanted entries on my syslog server.03/10/2012 12:57:48 172.21.113.20 Error 23898: Interface FastEthernet0/1, changed state to downI tried to stop them with no snmp trap link-status but it hasn;t worked.[CODE]
I have been experiencing wireless connectivity issues with one of our Cisco 1231G AP. Every now and then users would not be able to connect to the AP. To dive deeper into this issue, I would like to configure SNMP traps on this AP. We are using PRTG and there is an option to configure SNMP trap. However, I would need to now the OID of the AP. Also i need to check for interface up/down status for both fastethernet and the radio. PRTG should be able to notify me when there is any interface resets.
I recently installed a Cisco ACE 4710 version A4(2.0) into our test network. Load balancing across a number of web servers appears to be working ok and serving pages to users. However, when i tried to check the real time stats via device manager (Monitor> virtual contexts> context > Real servers) a number of fields specifically "current connections", "total conns", "failed conns" etc were showing N/A. Do I need to enable this somehow i.e. polling, if so how?
We are using a sticky serverfarm with 2 real servers, one server was down for maintenance for an extended period of time. When it came inservice again it was not getting any connections. is it because all the connections had stuck to the other server ? we want sessions to be sticky but we also want to LB?I got it working by bouncing the server that had been online all the time. things started to LB then.BTW the ACE 4710 is running 4.2.1
I ma having issues trying to import a .PEM file into an ACE 4710. The original file was a PCKS12 file that was converted to a set of .PEM files as I have no access to any server to do a file transfer. This has worked in the past. the error I get is "Error: File not of recognized types - PEM, DER or PKCS12, import failed". I am not sure what is exactly failing. The cert was converted to a .PEM and the ACE imported that fine.
Currently running an ACE 4710, which is handling all of our inbound SSL connections and then forwarding requests thru to backend web servers. This all works fine.
My question is this..Right now we are not load balancing any of the backen web servers. But I now have a requirement that should a web server crash or become unavailable I need to redirect that backend connection to another web server.
Scenario is more like I have 2 web servers both serving same content, but I want one server to take all the connections unless it fails, at that point have all the connections forwarded to 2nd server.Is there a way to setup the load balancing where the 1st server gets all the connections until a failure happens ?
I want to configure snmp-traps regarding stpx (root-inconsistency, loop-inconsistency) on a Cisco Nexus 1000V. The command "show snmp traps" lists stpx as a trap that could be configured and which is not at the moment.
Is there a way to send an SNMP trap form the ASA when port 80 is trying to be accessed??
We use the ASA5510 and also use ScanSafe Web Security. Web Security is great but we find ourselves worrying if user has edited their Browser connection settings to remove the proxy settings that we push down using Group Policy. We also cut off the users ability to make changes to those settings but it interferes when I need to troubleshoot a special program that cant use a proxy server. It just makes it harder for me. The other thing is that Group Policy only works for IE. Google Chrome will inherit the system settings in IE. So we have Safari and Firefox as well as a lot of others to worry about not getting the configuration. There is also debate about limitting the use of anything but IE and FireFox.
Without laying down the law and getting all sorts of hate mail and death threats I would like to run ScanSafe in such a way as to make sure each user receives the Group Policy settings and that is all.
I would now like to just set up an SNMP trap on the ASA for ANY traffic that is trying to get to port 80. Either get in in my syslog server or have the asa email me directly. Scansafe sends the Internet traffic out on 8080 to the Proxy towers.
I could block port 80 outbound but again, I limit my ability to troubleshoot on the fly. I would have to break this every time I need to troubleshoot.
I've done a lot of ACE work over the years but this is the first time this has ever come up.
I have a request from an application group where I have 3 rserver in the server farm but they want all traffic to only go to the first server unless that server fails. If the first server fails, only then do they want traffic to go to the 2nd server instead and if that fails, then traffic goes to the 3rd.
I've read through the documentation but haven't figured out a way to do this. What to do this type of failover configuration?
I´m Trying to synchronize the clock with NTP server external, these ntp server only support NTP version 3.Can I change the NTP version in the ACE4710 Appliance to support the ntp server external?If is possible, How I can change it ?

I want to configure my ACE so that if a probe fails, it fails over to the backup rserver, BUT it won't failback to the primary rserver until manual intervention is complete. The problem is we don't want an rserver to fail and failover to secondary, then failback to primary, repeat... (flip-flopping). I want to be able to have time to get on the server and find out what may have caused the probes to fail before it fails back.
I am seeing SNMP coldstart traps that either are delayed by many hours or are false (e.g. right after receiving the coldstart trap a query to sysUptime shows the nodes been up for days).I seen this twice this week in a new network environment for me for two different C2900s running C2900-UNIVERSALK9-M Version 15.0(1)M3 Assuming the coldstart traps are coming from the actual source nodes, I am curious what could be going on here.
1) One guess I have is possibly the system clock changed could cause the SNMP agent to send a false cold start trap. Then my guess is in the device log I should see a system time change syslog message.
2) I recall hearing once that syslog and possible traps messages are held in configurable buffer who default value is 1 and if not sent are held and then suffer a delayed sent. Is it true for both traps and syslog ? In the past I assumed this was simply the logging history buffer and applicable to syslog traps only. My assumption in the past was that last trap or last syslog message is sometimes held on reload and sent immediately after restart regardless of device connectivity to the management target.
I always assumed coldstart traps are never delayed for any reason and that they were pretty accurate substitutes for system reload syslog messages. Does anyknow know any reason for false or delayed coldstart traps on a C2900 with IOS 15.0(1) ?
