WAAS reboot question

Hi Team,

I would like to ask you one question regarding WAAS boot procedure.

/* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman","serif";}

Let’s say I have physical inpath implementation on the branch WAE and need to reload it (IOS upgrade). I know that in case of HW failure the WAE will “fail to cross” acting as a cable so there is no (or little) WAN outage. But is this statement true also during reload ? Is the WAE acting as a cable when it is rebooting or the location is completely cut off and the connection is established after the reload process ?

Many thanks!

Correct, when reloading the WAE with in-line support, the in-line card would go into pass-though mode.  Once the WAE is up, existing connections would continue in pass-though and any new connection would be optimized.
