Here is scenario. Hope someone can help !!!
I have two remote sites (Site A and Site B. Please see attached diagram), site A has two routers each with a separate WAN link (one to Verizon and one to Sprint) and site B only has one router with one WAN link to Sprint. I am running HSRP at site A with HSRP active on the Verizon router. And on both routers at site A I am running "IP WCCP 61 redirect in" on the LAN interface and "IP WCCP 62 redirect in" on the WAN interface and "IP WCCP redirect exclude in" on the subinterface that connects to the WAE device. When traffic leaves site A to site B it will hit the Verizon router first since it is HSRP active but it has not direct path to site B because site B does not have WAN connection to Verizon, so the traffic will then get rerouted over to the Sprint router to get out to site B.
Here is my issue: When the Verizon router receives a packet leaving for site B it redirects the packet to the WAE, then the WAE returns the packet to the Verizon router, it then does a layer 3 look up and sees that it has to route the packet to the Sprint router to get to site B. Then when the Sprint router receives the packet, it then redirects the packet to the WAE again and hence the WAE drops the packet as it sees the packet gets redirected to it twice.
Does anyone know if that's a normal behavior ?
Has anyone run into this issue and how to work around it ? I appreciate any inputs / suggestions !!!
And I do have "egress-method negotiated-return intercept-method wccp" on the WAE device.
Thanks in advance !!!
