Hello everyone -
We've recently purchased a Cisco WAAS solution 2x WAE 674 applicances, and I find myself running into a few questions. I'm configuring the devices in a test enviornment, just to get familliar with the interfaces / OS / CLI.
Our WAAS deployment is going to be fairly simple, one remote site (for now), with a DS3 as the pipe back to our datacenter. I'm still in the middle of reading through the massive amount of documentation available for this product, but would just like to ask a few basic questions. The WAAS boxes we purchased are the WAE-674's, with 4GB memory, and enterprise licenses. The orignial quote didn't include inline adapters for these boxes, and I'm trying to figure out what the differences are between inline interception, and configuring WCCP on my routers.
Another assumption that I'm making is that one of the boxes I'll need to configure as the central manager, and my remote box will be my WAE. Or am I wrong about this do they both need to be configured as WAE's, and if I need to add another site later on, I can configure a CM box at that time.
Any help is appreciated, I'm very comfortable with Cisco IOS / routers / switches / callmanager, but I'm fairly new to this product.
