Pre-Device Configuration Review (BIG-IQ)

BIG-IQ Configuration Review

Before we make any configuration changes, let’s take a glance at BIG-IQ.

Again, Firefox should automatically open four tabs. They are:
  • BIG-IP
  • BIG-IQ Centralized Management (CM)
  • BIG-IQ Data Collection Device (DCD)
  • Test App (will 404 until we start the service)

Click on the second tab and log into the BIG-IQ using admin as the username and f5agility! as the password.


Once logged into the BIG-IQ, click the Applications menu tab. This is the dashboard that shows deployed applications and corresponding status/statistics. Since we haven’t deployed any applications, this area has no data.

Click on the Devices tab at the top of the BIG-IQ window. Under BIG-IP Devices, which is the section automatically displayed, you will see that no BIG-IP devices exist in BIG-IQ.


We’re ready to begin configuring and importing the BIG-IP!
