How to use the Setup utility for the first time ?

Hi, I'v downloaded the BIG-IP LTM Virtual Edition, and launched it from a VMWarePlayer on a Windows7.



BIG-IP 10.1.0 Build 3341.1084 Kernel 2.6.18-164.2.1.el5.1.0.f5app on an i686



localhost login: root


Password: default


[root@localhost:NO LICENSE] config ifconfig ・・・


eth0:MnMt ・・・


inet addr: ・・・



I accessed following address form web browser.



Login prompt has appeared but authentication has faild.



Username: root


Password: default


→Login failed



Username: admin


Password: default


→Login failed



What is the first operation of first connection. Or what shall I do next. License instllation?


How can I install the Licence that I'v got from a email?

  • Hello okumura,



    The default GUI account is admin (root won't work) and the password is admin--not default.



  • Hi Okumura,



    Login at the console using username root and password default.


    Then run the config utility to set the management interface IP, netmask and default route.



    After you have done this you will be able to connect to the BIGIP over HTTPS using your web browser to activate your trial license and continue device configuration with the GUI.
