Receiving the following error when configuring WCCP on a ProxySG appliance: "Unrecognized command"

The error is presented because the ProxySG appliance expects a numeric value for the service-group definition, rather than an alphabetic value. In the above example, the service-group was listed as web-cache, which is no longer acceptable.
This applies to SGOS 6.5 and later.
Set the WCCP service-group to use a numeric value, such as service-group 5
