WAE FTP and offline Issue

Unanswered Question

Hello All,

I have really simple question for you.

1>   So once the WAE devices are taken offline ( Disabling WCCP) 

è  WAN traffic will continue flow has normal. However the current connections will be lost. Am I right ?

è  Also even thought we restart the WAE devices once they are offline it will not impact the current WAN  traffic ?

2>  So the other day I was trying to upload the 1.1.3b version to my WAE device which runs the CM ( Control Manager ) thru FTP however I got the time out error ( both thru the software and also thrui CLI ) here are the logs from the TFTP software. Also when i tried to upload the IOS image to the other WAE devices they had no issue.

Hi Soofi,

When you disable WCCP through the CLI, there is a graceful shut down period during which existing connections will continue to be handled by WAAS while new connections will be returned to the intercepting device for normal forwarding.  Once the graceful shutdown period as expired, optimized connections will be reset while pass-through connections will continue to flow normally.  Once you re-enable WCCP, existing connections will be handled as pass-through, while new connections will be optimized.

For the upgrade problem you are having, how are you trying to copying the image to the CM?  Can you please provide the exact steps you are taking?

Thanks,

Zach

Hi Zack,

-> Once the WCCP is disable, if I restart the WAE device will that affect the WAN trafiic ?

->  How are you trying to copying the image to the CM?

    

  

.- The CM was upgraded to 4.1.3.

The copy of the image from an tftp server was failing. The only way to install the image was using one of the WAEs as an ftp server and run the command "copy ftp install ..." from the CM.

Thanks
