WAAS : File preposition issue

Unanswered Question

I try to preposition some files on a WAVE-474-K9, running the 4.1.3a software version but without success.

In the syslog.txt file I have the following error message "java: %WAAS-CIFSAO-4-131237: (205218) Prepositon ID 1487942 failed, reason: network initialization error, retrying in 30 seconds" but on the WAE manager I have the following status :

In progress and it is running since 22 hours without any bytes copied.

Can someone help me to determine a possible root cause for this syslog error message.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Sebastien,

Make sure traffic is being redirected to Data center WAE and that it has CIFS AO Enabled.

If you using WCCP redirect list then make sure you add Branch WAE IP address to the ACL.

You could also take tcpdump on Data center wae just before starting PP job to make sure traffic is being redirected to wae.

Run 'show accelerator' to make sure CIFS AO is Enabled.

Hope this helps,

Best Regards,
