  • What is the difference between BigIP 11.1 vs 11.3 in relation to the iApp template. It says it's strongly recommened to go 11.3 and above, but I can't find the differences. Thanks if you can help
  • Hi Joe, do you think that latest iApp version works fine to deploy Exchange 2007 on v.11.4.1 with LTM only?
  • you could still deploy BIG-IP v11.5 for Exchange 2003 using the deployment guide (although there are some interface changes between v9 and v11). Could you please suggest what are those changes as I am stuck in deploying this and tried all the possible combination but its not going to work. ANy help to give a reference of configuration to deploy OWA 2003 on LTM 11.2 would be highly appreciated.
