I've been wanting to use the CCA multi-site manager for a while now, however if I try to use it I recieve the error:
A problem was detected in the device configuration that would interfere with a multisite configuration:
WAN interface is not configured.
The device is not currently configured for a static IP address for the WAN connection, and DDNS is not configured. Multisite may not be configured without DDNS being configured when DHCP is used on the WAN.
I have a Static IP address set (PPPoE, Static IP)... and you can't configure DDNS when a static IP is set.
I lodged a TAC case, and the support rep advised this was a known problem with CCA not detecting the static IP when PPPoE is enabled.
CCA 3.0 was released a few days ago.. why wasn't this fixed??? This seems like a trivial problem, and Cisco obviously knows about it... I know CCA is a pretty useless bit of software, but even so, when features like this don't work with a PPPoE internet connection I wonder who cisco is actually employing to work on their software development.
Until then.. the workaround was to disable PPPoE, and configure multi-site with the UC's offline... nice.....
The issue with the multisite manager not working with PPPoE (static) should be fixed in the next version of CCA - 3.0.1. This is scheduled to be officially released in the next few days. Disclaimer: I do not currently have 3.0.1, and have not tested this...
