Synchronize changes made to the F5 configuration with Address Manager.

If you have made any modifications to LTM servers, BIG-IP DNS Servers, or pools on the F5 management interface, such as changing the association between a Virtual Server and cache type, you can automatically synchronize those changes with Address Manager from the Details page of the respective LTM or BIG-IP DNS Server.

To automatically synchronize Address Manager with the F5 configuration:

  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.
  3. Under Servers, click an LTM server or BIG-IP DNS Server name.
  4. Click the server name menu button and select Auto Sync F5 Configuration.

Address Manager synchronizes with the F5 configuration for the selected LTM or BIG-IP DNS Server. Repeat the procedure for additional LTM or BIG-IP DNS Servers as needed.

If Address Manager can't synchronize with the F5 configuration (for example, due to a network connectivity issue), an event log will be added as "Failed to Auto Sync F5-BDDS links for <Local Traffic manager / BIG-IP DNS>: <LTMserver-name / BIG-IP DNS entity> ". Detailed error messages will be logged into server logs.
