NEW: Introduction to the F5 LTM Essentials Lab

Welcome to the F5 BIG-IP LTM Essentials lab session. This series is intended to guide you through the basic components of the F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) module. This guide is intended to complement lecture material provided during the lab. This will introduce students to the following BIG-IP concepts:

  • Pools
  • Members
  • Nodes
  • Virtual Servers
  • SNAT's
  • SSL Offload
  • Monitors
  • High-Availability

Additionally, this course also introduces basic troubleshooting concepts with hands on labs.

The lab environment consists of the following components:

  1. bigip01.f5demo.com Management IP Address: 10.1.1.4
  2. bigip02.f5demo.com Management IP Address: 10.1.1.6
  3. Ubuntu_LAMP1 Internal IP Address: 10.1.20.252
  4. Windows 10 Jumphost IP Address: 10.1.10.190

It is recommended that all lab work be completed via the Windows 10 Jumphost; however, it is entirely possible to access each of the BIG-IP systems via TMUI interface and perform configuration work on each of the BIG-IP appliances.
