WAE 612 deployed in HA - how do I set it up????

Answered Question

Can anyone give me some advise of deploying WAE at a branch site in HA Mode?


Is it possible for them to work in some kind of HA mode?


I don't plan on having the devices inline - So they will both be connected to a switch and use WCCP (well that's the plan anyway)


Any advise is welcome

Hi,


Just make sure to configure all your WAEs at a given site to talk to the same set of WCCP routers using the same WCCP services (WAAS uses WCCP services 61 and 62 by default). In this case, WCCP will automatically load-balance between all WAEs available in the WCCP cluster. WCCP will also adapt the load-balancing scheme whenever a WAE leaves or joins the WCCP cluster, thus achieving HA (if only a single WAE remains in the cluster, all load will be sent to that remaining WAE).


Please find further information on WCCP here:
