AD DC's behind F5....

We have several applications that are antiquated and not AD aware. They authenticate against a specific DC rather than to AD as a whole. So, typical AD load balancing will not work and we prefer not to use DNS round-robin load balancing. Unfortunately we can not upgrade the aplications at this time either.



I would like to Load Balanace a couple of AD DC's behind an F5. I understand Microsft frowns on this, but was wondering what would need to be done on the F5 to make this happen.



I have seen others say they have done this in the past, but unfortunately they are not willing to share how they accomplished this.
