Hi,

 

i am trying to install BIG-IP LTM on macbook pro with Oracle virtual box.

 

But, in the downloads section, i do not see any image intended for virtual box. Also, i see two different downloads sections:

 

First URL: https://downloads.f5.com/esd/ecc.sv?sw=BIG-IP&pro=big-ip_v12.x&ver=12.0.0&container=Virtual-Edition

And there is another downloads section, as mentioned below..

 

Also, i see another downloads page with version=12.0.0 and container=12.0.0, below are the download images

 

URL: https://downloads.f5.com/esd/eula.sv?sw=BIG-IP&pro=big-ip_v12.x&ver=12.0.0&container=12.0.0&path=&file=&B1=I+Accept

 

Product: BIG-IP V12.x / Virtual Edition Version: 12.0.0 Container: 12.0.0

Please select the file you wish to download, make sure you have read the appropriate Release Notes before attempting to use the file.

 

Filename Description Size **BIGIP-12.0.0.0.0.606.iso BIGIP-12.0.0.0.0.606.iso 1719 MB** README_VE_12_0_0.txt README_VE_12_0_0.txt 479 Bytes archive.pubkey.20130729.pem archive.pubkey.20130729.pem 451 Bytes BIGIP-12.0.0.0.0.606.iso.md5 MD5 file for BIGIP-12.0.0.0.0.606.iso 58 Bytes BIGIP-12.0.0.0.0.606.iso.sig BIGIP-12.0.0.0.0.606.iso.sig 256 Bytes

What is the difference between container=VirtualEdition and container=12.0.0 ?

 

Can anyone please help me in picking the right image/file?

Thanks in advance! -Venkat
