Hi, I was looking for an easy way to quick apply an Irule to a bunch of virtual servers, this is eventually being used to publish a maintenance page on a couple of websites.
So I foooled around with Icontrol a little bit and powershell F5 snapin. Now I'm looking for a script/oneliner which is able to put an Irule on a VS and remove it afterwards.
I tried this way :
ps > add-f5.ltmvirtualserverrule /Common/Irule -virtualserver /Common/Virtualserver
Which produces an error message: Cannot bind parameter 'Virtualserveritem' etc
So it looks like this cmdlet isn't suitable for a oneliner perhaps.
I found out (using Devcentral search) that the F5 management pack provides you with a cmdlet Register-LTMiRule, this would be perfect, however this cmdlet isn't available within the Icontrol package...
I'm not much of a powershell scripter so is there a oneliner/script available for this kind of purpose?
Maybe not a one liner, but you should be able to use the Get-F5.iControl cmdlet to assign the virtual to the rule. I wrote a tech tip on using the iControl rules methods here: https://devcentral.f5.com/articles/icontrol-101-09-irules
There is a section on how to create and apply rules to a virtual.
If you are using PowerShell, I'd check out the PowerShell page in the iControl wiki where there are bunch of samples and articles to reference.
Hope this helps...
