Outside of the numerous books and video we have on the Cisco site. Does anyone have a Cheat Sheet on setting up a Cisco ACE 4710? I've been tasked to power up our ACE and come find out it's not under support nor the latest code. It's running A5(1.2). That said I need to build it out while keeping the admin context and create two more additional Contexts for testing. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
We are using the same model and recently we replaced with older one. Right CISCO ACE dead in market.
What config you are looking for the same please share with me , so i can help you.
The ACE 4710 end of sales was January 2014. You cannot even buy a support contract on it anymore - only renew existing ones.
There's quite a bit of good documentation on it though. The configuration guide on the product support page is one place to start:
You should also check out the Cisco docwiki pages on ACE. I have found them to be a good resource.
Specifically there is a page on setting up virtual contexts:
...and another on troubleshooting:
Be warned that you will not have very good performance if you use the ACE for SSL offload. They never really enhanced it to support modern 2048-bit key length.
Good info. on the Virtual Context. So out the box I have it with a base config on the network. Should I build certs first and then the context or the context and then the certs under the context's that I would be using?
Do you mean SSL certificates being used by your servers?
You import those into the ACE in the contexts that you have already built.
