I have a WAAS network with redundant routers and am running WCCP for traffic interception and HSRP between the two routers and each router connects to a separate WAN provider and I have dual WAN connections at most locations except for two (Chicago and India), these two only have single WAN circuit. Here is my dilemma:
LotusNotes is having trouble connecting to the two locations with single WAN circuit, so all emails going to these two locations are being queued up. And I know the issue is caused by WCCP redirect with HSRP. Here is what I've found, in Chicago and India I only have a single WAN circuit connecting to Sprint and other locations I have two WAN circuits (Sprint and Verizon). The router that connects to Verizon is HSRP active for remote sites that have dual routers / dual WAN circuits, so traffic leaving remote sites with dual routers / dual WAN circuits will hit the router that connects to Verizon first since it's HSRP active then hops over to the router that connects to Sprint to get to Chicago or India and that is what causing the issues. If I make the router that connects to Sprint HSRP active then all is fine. So something with WCCP redirect and HSRP is messing things up.
Has anyone ran into these issues before ? I appreciate any thoughts / suggestions !!!
thanks in advance !!!
