Failover Q

Hi all.

 

 

i'm running a pair of bigip ver.10.1 with serial failover and got two targets:

 

 

1.how to migrate to network failover

 

2. upgrade to 11.1 , i know that there's an upgrade path through 10.2.4 first

 

 

regarding the failover, i couldn't find any tech doc or best practice on how to do so

 

which step shell i do first?

 

 

please share your knowledge and insights

  • 1.how to migrate to network failoveri understand you just normally configure network failover. when having both serial and network failover, serial failover will have precedence. then remove serial failover and test during maintenance window.

    2. upgrade to 11.1 , i know that there's an upgrade path through 10.2.4 firsti think best to upgrade to 10.2.0 or above first and then 11.x.
