    The LTM can provide also L7 loadbalancing, I think it would be good to reach out to a partner reselling F5 in your region in oder to clarify what is BIG-IP, what is LTM and WAF and what can do what for you.


    To answer your question regarding the IIS servers - it depends. Probably it's easier to manage those IIS servers when they are member of an AD Domain. Remote Administration, Patch Management, Backup, etc. All of that might be easier. But there is not a strict requirement from the perspective of loadbalancing. For the F5 it doesn't matter whether the server is in AD or not.
