Microsoft Azure: Waagent¶
BIG-IP VE uses the Microsoft Azure Linux Agent (waagent) to manage Linux and to interact with the Azure Fabric Controller.
BIG-IP VE 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 include a modified version of waagent v2.2.2.
You should not install your own version of waagent on the BIG-IP VE instance.
If you decide to use waagent, some functionality won’t work and you may get unexpected results.
Most changes are in a file called
f5.py, which contains all F5 specific derived classes from
DefaultOSUtil. Other changes are in this file:
The major behavior changes are:
- F5 disabled auto-upgrade
- You cannot install and run Azure extensions
