Add or edit an F5 LTM server to an Address Manager configuration.

Before adding an F5 LTM server to Address Manager, ensure you have completed the following prerequisites:
  • You must be using an F5 LTM v11.6 or later with REST API support
  • The F5 LTM environment should be preconfigured on the F5 management interface with Virtual Servers linked to the F5 resource pool
  • Users must have administrative access to both the web management and SSH command line interfaces on the F5 system.
  • TCP port 443 must be open in both directions.
  • TCP port 22 must be open in both direction for SSH access to the command line interface and also for configuration verification.

To add or edit an LTM server:

  1. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.

      Note: The Management URL will be used for RESTful API communication between Address Manager and the BIG-IP DNS Server.
