inline WAAS speed settings

Unanswered Question
Nov 5th, 2007

Is there any possobility of problem if LAN side of inline group is set to 1Gb but WAN side is only 100 Mbps ?

Also I can not see LAN and WAN settings in WAE-512K9 of 4.0.13 although this is clearly shown in 4.0.7 configuration of of 511.

How would I learn what is negotiated on WAAS side ? There is no command or I can not find it.



I have this problem too.

The LAN and WAN ports of the inline card must be set to the same speed and duplex.

'show interface' from the CLI should display speed and duplex settings of all interfaces including those on the inline card.

sh interface command does not show anything as below;

waasnz1#sh interface InlineGroup 1/0

Interface is in intercept operating mode.

Standard NIC mode is off.

Disable bypass mode is off.

VLAN IDs configured for inline interception: All

Watchdog timer is enabled.

Timer frequency: 1600 ms.

Autoreset frequency 500 ms.

The watchdog timer will expire in 1274 ms.

Is there any other command?

Beginning in 4.0.13, we no longer allow the inline ports to be configured independently. To see what speed/duplex has been negotiated, you can use the command 'sh int inlineport '.

there is no inlineport interface either as below (??).

interface InlineGroup 1/0

inline vlan all


interface InlineGroup 1/1

inline vlan all

The inline ports are not shown in the running configuration. You can see the option by typing 'sh int ?'.

sh int ? shows these ;

waasnz1#sh interface ?

FibreChannel Display information for FibreChannel device

GigabitEthernet Display information for GigabitEthernet device

ide Display information for IDE interface

InlineGroup Select an inline group interface to configure

InlinePort Select an inline port interface to configure

PortChannel Display information for EtherChannel device

scsi Display information for SCSI device

Standby Display information for Standby interfaces

usb Display information for USB interface

but waasnz1#sh interface inlineport ?

<1-4>/ Slot number

waasnz1#sh interface inlineport

what is the slot number ? It does not accept 1/0 or 1/1 which is used for groups. Very confusing !! How can you display something that is not in the config, odd with usual Cisco standards !!

Okay I have found the status of the ports in the system file as below;

Nov 6 14:28:42 waasnz1 Sysmon: %WAAS-SYSMON-3-445010: Fault detected: InlinePort 1/1/wan

Nov 6 02:16:32 waasnz1 kernel: %WAAS-SYS-3-900000: e1000bp: eth2: e1000bp_watchdog: NIC Link is Down

Nov 6 02:16:35 waasnz1 kernel: %WAAS-SYS-3-900000: e1000bp: eth2: e1000bp_watchdog: NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Half Duplex

Nov 6 02:16:37 waasnz1 kernel: %WAAS-SYS-3-900000: e1000bp: eth3: e1000bp_watchdog: NIC Link is Up 1000 Mbps Full Duplex

It shows that eth2 negotiated half duplex.I will set both ports to gig/full after hours.

the correct commands were ;

sh inter InlinePort 1/1/lan


sh inter inlineport 1/1/wan

thanks Zach.
