I have downloaded BIGIP-13.1.1-0.0.4.ALL-scsi.ova trial and deployed it using VMWare Player. Here are the steps I took.
1) On the VM network adapters I have set the subnet adress as follows.
2) Below is how my vlan, selfip setup.
3) I then imported a linux VM (SliTaz) and configured its network adapter to VMNet2 internal from VMPlayer interface. This is to be used as a node for my internal vlan.
4) I then went through node, pool and vitual server setup. Here is my setup.
My question is regarding the Virtual IP provided in the above step. I setup it up as 192.168.2.3. Is this correct?
I tried accessing the it from my laptop and here is where I see an issue.
I tried accessing the internal from my laptop and everything works as shown.
Why am I not able to access the VIP (192.168.2.3) ? I am thinking something is wrong in my setup. Could you please guide me where I am not configuring this properly.
That was a typo I had when I took the screenshot. May be I was accessing it too quick. After your message I went ahead and tried the ping to 192.168.2.3 and it worked fine.
The other thing I had to do was set the Source Address translation setting on VIP to AutoMAP as shown below.
Without the above setting in place when I try to access VIP 192.168.2.3 from my laptop I was getting "Connection Reset"
Once the above setting is set to Auto Map the VIP responded and I could see the response from the backend pool member.
Thank you for your response.
