Cisco WAE registration problem


I have a data centre WAE-574 using WCCP redirect. Behind a firewall I have the CM. In a remote location, +/- 600ms RTT, I have another WAE-574 in line mode. This was working perfectly until it was powered off. It lost all its config on recovery. I reloaded the config but cannot get it to register. The central-manager address is correct but when I enter 'cms enable' on the remote WAE it times out after several minutes. I have deleted the device from the CM.

If I check the data centre WAE with the "show stat conn" I can see sessions between the CM and remote WAE on port 443.

There is nothing I can find in the CM logs that relates to the remote WAE. Is this a timer issue ? Where can I see further diagnostics ?

Best regards

Firewall is Palo-Alto. Both the data centre and remote WAE's are in front of the firewall and the central manager behind, Te data centre and CM work correctly. Both the data centre WAE and the remote WAE have synchronised clocks. The central manager and remote WAE can ping each other.

The only thing I can see is the inbound traffic from the remote WAE to the CM, The CM initiates the 443 session but then nothing happens. Could this be an SSL issue ?

Just as a reminder. The remote WAE contacts the central manager via the data centre WAE. All incoming traffic from the branch is redirected via WCCP.

Should I take WCCP off for the registration ?

The problem was WCCP. This was removed and the device registered and came online. However, When WCCP was re-enabled I now get the device going offline again. Is this an SSL issue between the 2 WAEs ?
