I was using the evaluation version Workstation 10 and BIG-IP VE TRIAL version 13.1.1
I had no issues.
My evaluation period for the Workstation 10 was over - I decided to purchase the license- I was redirected to download latest Workstation 15.
Initially the upgrade went well.... My linux vm worked ... However when I started the BIG-IP i was requested to upgrade my vm...hmmm.
Which I did .
I then started having issues .. the VM was not stable .... also I could no longer ping /communicate over the bridge NIC ( between the local machine and BIG-IP) .. They virtual nic ( hosts) seemed to be ok
Contacted Vmware - and started the process to downgrade from Workstation 15 back to Workstation 10.
I can now ping over the bridge local machine and BIG-IP.
I have not completed my testing ... BUT ... the configs that I had ( i two instances of BIG-IP) ... no longer works ... VMware gives me an error saying "that the configuration file xxxx.vmx was created by a VMware product that is incompatible with this version of VMware workstation"
It looks like when I upgraded to Workstation 15 my config files were modified and now are no longer compatible with lower version 10.... scary !!
This is a LAB in environment .. I can always recreate my config.... but what would happen in a Production Environment ???
