WAE ACNS 5.5.5 to cache/pre-load MS Sharepoint?

Hi, I have been unable to get the following to work... Is it even possible? If not, what would I need? WAAS?

1 HQ site, 1 branch site. An AD Domain Controller is located at each site. A Sharepoint server is located in HQ and I would like to have the branch site WAE/ACNS/WCCP transparently cache and pre-load Sharepoint content. However, because Sharepoint is part of Microsoft AD, I think I need to setup authentication/authorization on the CE. If so, what should I use? NTLM or LDAP?

When using NTLM, "latest_preload_errror" file shows authorization failed or ERROR 401: Unauthorized. "show stat ntlm" responds NTLM server ** DEAD ** whereas Global Catalog server shows ** ALIVE **.

If I use LDAP, "show stat ldap" displays 0 for all counters. And, the "latest_preload_error" file shows "Authorization failed".

I cannot find appropriate documentation for this specific setup and would appreciate any comments/help.

Thanks a million

This error message can also be displayed due to incorrectly configured SNMP community strings and DNS misconfigurations. To rule out this possibility, verify that these parameters have been configured correctly.

Re: WAE ACNS 5.5.5 to cache/pre-load MS Sharepoint?

Thanks very much for your response sadbulali. I don't have any snmp stuff configured yet. Also, "ip name-server" commands are correctly pointing to the MS AD DNS servers which were confirmed to be running free of problems.

Regardless, should I use NTLM or LDAP for this? I would like to concentrate on troubleshooting one or the other.

Thanks again.
