CMS status offline:is apllication acceleration/optimization possible?

Unanswered Question
Apr 16th, 2009


While deploying WAAS,i ran into some problem with one of the edge WAE,it has constantly shown its CMS status as offline.

The problem is it comes online then goes offline almost immediately.

Whats more is that i can't telnet (I can ping it though)to the equipment at the moment-i dont know why this so(it gives an error that it cant open connections on port 23).

Is it possible to have optimization/acceleration when the CMS status is offline.I am thinking CMS comes in only for management,correct me if i am wrong.

I have this problem too.

CMS being enabled is not needed for optimization, however it's needed for new configuration pushes from the CM and statistical reporting to the CM.

If you are running 4.0 and your WAE is a older version of WAAS then your CM, upgrade it to the same version or newer then the CM. In 4.1, the CM needs to be the higher version, but in 4.0, it needs to be the lower version (4.0.17 verses 4.0.21, etc.).

Hope that helps,
