Install / Uninstall

The following information will assist in installing and uninstalling FAST on the BIG-IP.

Installation

Requirements:

  1. Download the FAST extension RPM from GitHub to a location accessible from the BIG-IP

  2. From the BIG-IP management GUI, install the extension by navigating to iApps > Package Management LX

  3. Click Import then select the RPM you downloaded

    Once the package is imported, f5-appsvcs-templates will appear in the list of installed extensions.

    Note

    On BIG-IP versions prior to 14.0, the iApps LX framework must be enabled before the Configuration utility is visible. To do this, run the following command on the BIG-IP: touch /var/config/rest/iapps/enable. This command only needs to be run once (per BIG-IP system). This is not necessary with BIG-IP 14.0 and later.

Uninstalling FAST

To completely uninstall, and remove, the “F5 Applications Services Templates” entry from the GUI, perform the following steps:

  1. iApps> Package Management LX select f5-appsvcs-templates, click Uninstall then Yes to confirm

  2. iApps> Application Services> Applications LX select F5 Applications Services Templates, click Undeploy

  3. iApps> Application Services> Applications LX select F5 Applications Services Templates, click Delete then Yes to confirm deletion

The result should be a Status of There are no applications listed.
