GTM irule with geoip

I have been trying to get an irule to work that uses a class match statement with no luck. SO I though I would try finding one here that I know should work:

 

 

 

http://devcentral-sea.f5.com/Tutorials/TechTips/tabid/63/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/1082330/New-Geolocation-Capabilities-in-v101.aspx

 

whenCLIENT_ACCEPTED {set region [class match -value [whereis [IP::client_addr] abbrev] equals us_regions]if { $region ne "" } {switch $region { midwest { pool $region } east { HTTP::redirect http://my-east.application.com } south { HTTP::redirect http://my-south.application.com } west { HTTP::redirection http://my-west.application.com } } else { pooldefault }}

 

 

 

The only difference is that I am using when DNS_REQUESTED.. I keep getting the same error no matter what I do with class match statement. Am I missing something and GTM cant use class match? I am using v 10.2.1.297.0 and this is a 1600 , which F5 sent me to test out the GSLB/geoip capabilities. What am I doing wrong or missing. Also can I verify that my data group is correct.

 

 

I have something like this:

 

class us-regions {

 

"MA" {"EAST"}

 

}

 

 

error:

 

line 2: [undefined procedure: class] [class match -value[whereis [IP::client_addr] abbrev] equals us-regions]

 

 

thanks for any pointers

Which states that data groups are not supported in GTM irules "yet" but that was in 2008?? IS this still not supported at this time...

I guess i can just do this with a topology config instead....

yes, datagroups are still not yet supported in GTM iRules. You can do a hybrid approach with topology and iRules as described in a blog post I wrote up: http://devcentral.f5.com/weblogs/jason/archive/2011/03/23/gtm-classless-classes.aspx Click Here
