The WCCP Router ID is selected just like an OSPF or BGP Router ID. It is the IP address of the loopback interface or the highest IP address of an admin "up" interface (if

there is no loopback).

Unlike, OSPF or BGP, there is no way to hardcode the router id. So, your only option is to configure a loopback address, so the Router Identifier under WCCP does not keep changing.

I hope it helps.
