I want to add LTM to GTM on same box. I have gone through following link, but little confused as it says about adding GTM also. Why this is required? I mean we can simply add LTM self IP in servers, GTM addition means what exactly?
GTM doesn't really exist anymore, it is called DNS now
that link talks about a situation where you have dedicated LTM and dedicated DNS (formerly GTM) boxes, so different appliances. in that case you have to make them work together with the command listed.
but you can also just run LTM and DNS (formerly GTM) on the same box if your license allows that.
Thanks .. But without extra license ?
i mean only to have LTM and FNS Modules ?
Technically LTM is always on the box...
For example, a GTM listener is just an LTM VS. Even a dedicated GTM can run LTM iRules on the listener. Which can be handy at times.
