Virtual IP

I wanted some standard command line scripts for configuring virtual IP in F5.



So that I can copy and paste whenever necessary.?




Please provide thank you

  • do you mean command line to create/configure virtual server?

    in case of bigpipe, is bigpipe virtual help helpful?

    [root@iris:Active] config  b virtual bar destination snat automap pool foo profile tcp http persist cookie
    [root@iris:Active] config  b virtual bar list
    virtual bar {
       snat automap
       pool foo
       ip protocol tcp
       persist cookie
       profiles {
          http {}
          tcp {}

    You can use bigpipe on older versions (it was completely phased out in version 11). Its replacement, TMSH, is much easier to navigate. You can select it as your default shell in the 'Users' area of the Web UI or just type 'tmsh' from bash on an v10+ box. The TMSH syntax for creating a virtual identical to nitass's from the command line would look like this:

    root@test-ltm-03(Active)(/Common)(tmos) create /ltm virtual bar destination snat automap pool foo profiles add { tcp http }
