9.1.0

Add an F5 Local Traffic Manager (LTM server) that functions as a load-balancer.

Address Manager supports F5 LTM servers and F5 BIG-IP DNS® Servers (formerly known as Global Traffic Managers) to provide load-balancing services among multiple data centers. BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server administrators can control and manage an F5 load balanced environment without having to go through a change control process on the F5 servers.
Note: Address Manager and/or DNS/DHCP Server administrators should have prior knowledge of F5 systems. Detailed information on the setup and configuration of F5 Local Traffic Managers is out of scope of this documentation. For more information, refer to https://f5.com/products/big-ip/local-traffic-manager-ltm.
