I am trying to set up F5 Big IP LTM in AWS environment. I used the architecture described here https://aws.amazon.com/quickstart/architecture/f5-big-ip-ve/ and deployed via cloud formation template https://aws-quickstart.s3.amazonaws.com/quickstart-f5-big-ip-virtual-edition/templates/workload.template and it got deployed successfully.
I got issue in configuring node, pool, virtual server etc. I managed to login to portal and successfully configured them in one node. But configuration is not replicated to other nodes in the auto scaling group. I tried terminating instance and it spins up new instances. But they don’t have my configuration.
My understanding is that this architecture uses s3 to store data. Won’t it store configuration data in S3 ? How to manage on going configuration (new virtual server, pool etc) with architecture ? Does anyone used it before.
