Problem this snippet solves:

The goal of this script is to allow for automate migration from Cisco ACE to F5 LTM configuration. It is now a little bit old and have wanted to add to it and update it for a while but other projects have kept me busy so have made it public (Code can be found here https://gitlab.com/stratalabs/ace2f5-py)


This have only tested on 11.x and some 12.x configuration and not all configuration items from a Cisco ACE configuraiton convert but you normally get a warning/alert on items you will need to do manually.

How to use this snippet:

Generate the F5 configuration:


python ace2f5.py -f <ACE configuration input file> [-o <F5 configuration output file>] [-n NOT FULLY IMPLEMENTED (will disable out, i.e. validation to screen only]

If no output file is defined will output to ACE configuration file name plue '.checking'

Can also run and stay in Python CLI using the -i option e.g.


python -i ace2f5.py -f <ACE configuration input file>

After manually checking the output file run the following to generate a clean F5 TMOS configuration file with a .output extension. This .output is the file to be imported into F5 LTM


python checking-output.py -f <ace2f5.py checking file>


Tested this on version:

11.6
