WAAS 'Master Master'

Answered Question
Jul 27th, 2007

For one possible deployment, a customer has a main site, a branch site, and a DR site. The topology I'm looking at is:

Controller at main site

WAE 512 at main site

WAE 512 at DR site

IOS NM WAE at branch site

Two questions:

1) Will the main site 512 act as core and the dr site 512 act as edge for traffic going main->dr, and work in reverse roles simultaneously for traffic going dr->main, with dr 512 as core and main 512 as edge?

2) Can the branch NM be Edge to both 512's in their simultaneous Core roles?

Thanx.

Ray.

I have this problem too.

Ray,

1. You can enable both the WAFS Edge and Core service on the same WAE so long as you have a minimum of 2GB of memory.

2. Yes, the WAFS Edge can connect to multiple WAFS Core Clusters.

Thanks,

Zach

Whichever is configured as Core acts as a core and the one configured as edges run as edges.
