I've been trying to set up a test lab for a client involving a WAAS remote site connected to the data centre via a p2p link.
For the purpose of the lab, and on lacking an additional switch there, I have created two vlans on the 6500 data centre switch(vlan 500 for WAE and 600 for Users) and connected them via a trunk port to the remote WAN router since the ISR is lacking an extra interface for dedicated lan access to the Edge WAE. A p2p link on interface g2/6 is connecting the 6500 data centre switch to the remote WAN router.
WCCP redirection has been configured on vlans 30 and 40 where the data centre servers are attached. Vlan50 is hosting the Core WAE and CM machines. The path to the remote site to the data centre appears to be ok and both Core and Edge WAE have been registered to the CM successfully with all default policies applied. However, I cannot see any optimized flows during file transferring.
Attached are the configuration files of all the relevant equipment. I have noticed that on the Core WAE when you check the wccp routers configured, I'm getting a router ID different than the ip address in which the WAE is senting traffic(i.e svi or gateway address). This address appears to be the loopback 0 on the 6500 switch. What is the role of this Router ID there? I have found no reference about it in any config guides from Cisco.
Did you exclude the ATP configuration from the output you posted on purpose? Please provide the output from the CLI command 'sh pol stat' on both WAEs.
What is the file transfer protocol you are using?
For optimal performance, you should change the WCCP configuration on the core WAE to the following:
wccp router-list 1 10.76.136.73
wccp tcp-promiscuous router-list-num 1 l2-redirect mask-assign
wccp version 2
In addition, please remove the 'ip wccp redirect exclude in' command from the 6500 configuration. This can have a negative impact on performance, and isn't required when only using inbound redirection.
Lastly, please upgrade to the latest 4.0.13 WAAS release on CCO.
