Adding F5 BIG-IP LTM Device

On this post, we will go through the steps to add a BIG-IP F5 device provisioned with the LTM module to ADCBOSS.

In order to add a F5 BIG-IP LTM Load balancer to the  platform you need to navigate to Devices → Add Device → F5 BIG-IP as shown below:

A screen like the one shown below will appear:

On this screen you need to populate the following information:

  • Device Name
  • IP Address
  • Administrator username
  • Administrator Password
  • Datacenter

If you want to fetch the configuration from the device tick the “Get Configuration” option. As we are adding a F5 LTM device, tick the “LTM Module” option.
If you get any error when trying to add the device, check the following:

  • Username and password for admin user are correct
  • Device name and IP address are correct. It is important that the actual Device name configured on the appliance matches the name used here. You need to type the hostname you see on the welcome window from the F5 device as shown below:
  • Connectivity from the ADCBOSS appliance on port 443 and 22 to the BIG-IP F5 device is allowed.

Once the device has been correctly added to ADCBOSS, you can see it navigating to Devices→List devices
The details of the F5 BIG-IP device will appear on this screen:
