I am new to the WAAS world and getting little confused with its terminlogy.
When we look into different models (some are appliance based, some are modules).
I was going thru the below link about WAAS appliances:
and did not see any mention about the appliance WAVE-694, instead the closest it was showing was WAE-674. (Whats the difference between WAE and WAVE appliances and why WAVE 694 wasnt showing up in the list?)
Second thing, I also have WAVE-274 which I wanted to upgrade. While i was reading thru the config giude, it said there are two types of files, universal and accelarator only (both bin files). and i could understand the difference between the two.
However, when i was looking at this WAVE-274 console and did show version, the output was as follows (it wasnt showing the file type anywhere, like it usually does on IOS devices for eg "/flash/filename.bin":
Cisco Wide Area Application Services Software (WAAS)

Cisco Wide Area Application Services (universal-k9) Software Release 4.4.5 (buil
d b5 Feb 4 2012)
Also when do back up of the config, using "cms database backup" likewise whats the way to back up the image onto the ftp server??
Nest thing, when i went to download software page on cisco website, under the latest 4.4.5c, I could see so many different files, like
32 bit system image, 64 bit system image,SM/SRE install zip file and many more along with the normal universal and accelerator binary images. So my question was when will i need to use the 32 or 64 but system file, also how would i know that for eg, WAVE 274 is 32 or 64 bit?
And in case i am using WAVE SM on a ISR router like 2900 ISR, will i need to use the SM/SRE install zip file to upgrade instead of normal upgrade for appliances?
Sorry for too many questions in a go, but i believe it shouldn't be time consuming to explain for someone who have worked on them before.
Thanks in advance!
