Automap Configuration

If I have virtual server configured to use Automap (instead of SNAT), does the IP address used change with every session to the virtual server or will it remain the same?

  • That depends on how many eligible IP addresses you have. Here's how the IPs are selected:


    Pay attention to the note:

    "When there are multiple self IP addresses on the egress VLAN, the BIG-IP system alternates the addresses using a load balancing selection similar to the Least Connections load balancing method."
