In this episode of Lightboard Lessons, I walk through my personal lab configuration on my Mac, utilizing VMware Fusion to deploy the F5 BIG-IP Lab Virtual Edition along with a few Ubuntu LAMP servers and a shopping cart VM for ASM testing. Fusion is but one of many hypervisor options for running a local lab-in-a-box that can be used.

What does your personal lab look like? Shoot me a picture and I’ll post updates to this article with a listing of other alternatives.

Is this method still working/supported on BIGIP-15.1.0-0.0.31.LTM_1SLOT?

 

After changing the password back to default (by doing an intermediate step to another password, as the first login requires a mandatory password change), packer seems to fail to connect with Big-IP over ssh. I can login with the credentials in the VirtualBox UI console though.

If I look into the Virtualbox UI, I see that mcpd and devmgmtd are in a crashloop.

The output of dmesg shows the tmm interface flapping.
