LTM and GTM on the same box on both site then use GTM sync

Hi everyone! I would like to ask if using a single box on both GTM and LTM. My design is I have two F5 appliances with 2 modules(GTM and LTM) that will be located on each DMZ site(2 DMZ sites). I would like to use GTM for global load balancing and LTM for the local load balancing of the app/web servers. Since I have two appliances, I would like to GTM sync the two appliances.

 

Question: Is this possible?

 

Thanks!

Hi Justine,

 

Yes it is.

Would it not introduce some errors? What are the keynotes for this?

No it will not. keynotes: 1. ensure capacity planning is done right per the model you have. 2. config is same as when you have GTM AND LTM on separate boxes. you need to do bigip_add for the other GTM/LTM and when you are done with configuring the first GTM you can sync its config from the second GTM. gtm_add . this cmd should be from the second unconfigured GTM.

Thanks Eben.
