I wanted to clarify some concepts regarding WAAS placement.
We have a scenario with different vlans in a core switch with SVIs as gateway for hosts.
The core Switch is connected to core router interface using vlan1 since there are no routed ports in switch,all the vlans traffic is routed to the vlan1 to reach the router.
But some networks in the Switch are not in vlans and are by default in vlan1. The router interface has secondary ip addresses configured since its is acting as a geteway for these networks not in the vlans.
In short router interface which is connected to vlan1 of the switch is the only outgoing interface for the network.
Now in this mixed scenario where should the redirection be applied. Since router LAN interface is the gateway for other networks not in vlans and not the switch vlan1 SVI then we cannot apply redirection on SVI interface.
Is it possible to apply redirection on router LAN and WAN interfaces? IF yes then, can we put the WAAs box in vlan1 network? Will it optimized traffic for other vlans or for networks for which router has secondary ip addresses?
Waiting for any sort of help.Thanks
Customers repeatedly asked Cisco to change the requirement for a separate subnet / interface. the redirect exclude in was needed when using a separate interface to prevent optimized traffic from being redirected.
in 4.0.13 the requirement for extra subnet was removed and wae can now be placed on user vlan.
