In 4.1.x releases you don't need to configure the Core / Edge for CIFS anymore (unless you have WAEs running older version and hence want to keep that legacy config). Since you mentioned that you installed two new WAEs and doing the tests between them you really don't the core/edge config.
If you have a Central Manager then after login go to
'Manage Devices->choose the WAE(1)' and then on the left drawer / pane click 'Accleration->Enabled Features'
After clicking 'enabled features' the page will load with enabled features for this particular device (on the right side of the screen). Ensure ' CIFS Accelerator' is checked.
Repeat this exercise for the second WAE as well.
Another way to find out is, telnet or console into the WAEs and then run 'show accelerator'. You want to ensure
CIFS is licensed, config state is 'Enabled' and Operational Status is 'Running' on both WAEs.
With 4.1.x by default CIFS AO (application optimization) is enabled by default. So, all you need is license. Since you have enabled the license it should work.
Its been long since you posted this so i suppose you must have solved your problem. I am experiencing the same problem and would like to know how you did it? I am running a test with two sites as follows
HQ - Core Appliance - WAVE 574 running 4.1.1c
Central Manager - WAE 512 running 4.3.5
Remote 1 - WAVE 274 running 4.1.1c
Remote 2 - WAE 512 running 4.3.5
Inline interception configured, No legacy services configured
when i check all diagnostics on the central manager, all results are positive but no optimization happening. The graphs shows a sizeable WAFS traffic but as passthrough traffic.
