Perl script to parse Siebel lbconfig.txt file update for BIG-IP v10

Attached is an updated version of the Perl script that parses the output file of Siebel's 'generate lbconfig' command and produces the BIG-IP commands for creating the appropriate configuration. This script is referenced in the Deploying F5 with Siebel Business Applications 8.0 deployment guide and the procedure hasn't changed. What has changed is that the resulting output should work on BIG-IP 10.x versions.



Please try and report back here.

  • The attachment doesn't appear to be in your post anymore. Do you still have the updated perl script?


  • Hello, i have used the script in the past for v10. Tried it now on Unix and and Win7 with different version of Perl (5.16 and 5.18 32/64bit) but the bigip.cfg always only contains the monitor and the pool. the irule and the vs are missing. does someone have a hint for me. thank you.

      quickref- Could you send me a copy of the script that you are using for v10? I only have the pre-tmsh version.

    Hi Everyone, the DevCentral team has made the Siebel 8.0 script for BIG-IP Version 10 configurations available for download here:



    Thank You DC Team !


  • Hi guys, problem is fixed. My colleague who provided the Siebel script made some manual changes to it. We found that he added a = sign in one line. Took us some time to spot it. Now everything is working fine.


    @,mrintzler. the link provided Chris works for me. Let me know if you need it anyway. thank you
