Issues between VMware ESXi, 7.0.3 and F5 DNS/GTM

Hi everyone

I Have deploy a VE F5 DNS/GTM/LTM with the version 16.1.3 0.0.12 on platform VMware ESXi, 7.0.3.

The issues ocurred when i upload the firmware to F5 i lost all comunication with the device.

i recover the access to f5 device apply a reset from vCenter.

My team upgrade resources of the device F5(ram, ssd, processor)thinking that was the problem, but the issues continue.

Someone have a similar issues with that's platforms?

Best Regards!

  • Jose,

    When you mention that you lost connection to the F5 while upgrading firmware, do you mean an upgrade on TMOS? Which version are you trying to install? If you're trying to upload custom firmware to a VE for hardware drivers, that is not supported.
