F5 Application Delivery Controller Solutions > NEW: Introduction to the F5 LTM Essentials Lab Source | Edit on
Lab Network Setup¶
In the interest of focusing as much time as possible configuring your application delivery controller, we have provided some resources and basic setup ahead of time. These are:
- Cloud-based lab environment complete with a Windows 10 Jumphost, two virtual BIG-IP's (VE), and an Ubuntu Server running a LAMP Stack.
- The virtual BIG-IPs have been pre-licensed
To access the lab environment, you will need a web browser and Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) client software. If you are using a MAC you will need to download the Microsoft RDP client from the Apple Mac App Store. The web browser will be used to access the lab training portal. The RDP client will be used to connect to a Windows 10 Jumphost where you will access the virtual BIG-IP (VE) via the Google Chrome browser and perform testing of configuration resources configured throughout each lab.
You class instructor will provide additional lab access details.
Timing for Labs
The time it takes to perform each lab varies and is mostly dependent on accurately completing steps. This can never be accurately predicted but we strived to derive an estimate among several people each having a different level of experience. Below is an estimate of how long it will take for each lab:
|LAB Name (Description)||Time Allocated|
|LAB 1 – Configure Virtual Servers and Pools||40 minutes|
|LAB 2 – Work with SNAT, Profiles, and Monitors||45 minutes|
|LAB 3 – Working with SSL and Persistence||40 minutes|
|LAB 4 – iApps and FAST||30 minutes|
|LAB 5 – Configure High Availability||30 minutes|
