Dear All Experties,
We are using a Cisco Content engine 7325 as a proxy server.recently we brough WAE-674 as a replacement of these old content engine.After turn on WAE-674,Blue screen pop up on moniter.I am not able to access anything with GUI as well through command line.That why i am not able to configure that one.
Please advise me if anybody else also faced this problem or if anybody have any idea what i can do ???
Thanks in advance
How are you connected to the WAE?
If you are directly connected to the WAE through a screen/keyboard, what you see might be expected: the WAAS/ACNS software stop redirecting it's console output on the screen after booting it's kernel and move it to the serial port.
This is explained in the hardware specs of your device:
You can connect a keyboard to any USB port and connect a monitor to the video connector to troubleshoot the BIOS boot process. However, video output is for troubleshooting only during the BIOS boot process. The video output stops displaying when the serial port becomes active. To monitor the boot process in normal operation, use the serial console port.
Could you have a look at the boot sequence from the serial port and see if everything looks fine from there?
First thanks for your reply.
i cross checked all of my cables and all are fine and a right place.
Actually it's reboot from Kernal Controller succesfully and then i can see below errors with Continoes and Exit option.
5962 configuration change has occurred
162 configuration Change has occured
And if i click Continoues options it will take in Bios option.
Please Advice me accordingly.
I did some researches on those error messages and they seem to be linked to an hardware issue on the device.
If I where you, I would have a TAC case opened to have it confirmed and have a replacement sent if this is the case.
One of my customers want to use WAE-674 as a proxy to speedup and cache youtube videos for a college environment. Do you find the WAE a useful appliance in this scenario ? Is the performance improvement good ?
Cisco annouces the end of sale and end of lifedates for the Cisco WAE 674 Platforms. The last day to order the affected product(s) is August 17, 2012.
As per my personal opinion,i don't prefer you to go for it.If you have some extra money for Smart support only then it's fruitfull.
I ordered two WAE devices and you being surprised that both devices are Disk0 failure....:(
Just for your information cisco add content engine features in new cisco ASA so try that one.
Thanks Anuj for the recommendation. But i dont see content engine feature in ASA. there is only content security i believe ?
Sorry i did more concentrate on filtering.
ok,you can use wae as a content engine.Actually my concern was to explain one thing that only upto testing period is tuff but after putting in a production enviorment you should be relax.
