Hello, we use pool members defined through FQDN.
So far we have used DNS set in system/configuration/device/DNS, it works fine, F5 communicates through mgmt interface with the DNS server.
Can we send DNS queries through production interface instead of management? I know it might be done through iRule (old concept of using FQDN pool members), but I would like to avoid any irules. Is there any other trick?
DNS queries should follow the routing table that has been configured on the device. Do you have a management route defined for DNS that will send these requests over the mgmt interface...?
tmsh list sys management-route
There is default route and couple of static for our central management stuff etc. Since DNS is part of system settings I guess it uses management port as default. Do you think we could override it by using /32 route in TMOS (in some partition)?
