1.3. Installing the F5 LBaaS Agent¶
Two pieces of software are required to use F5 BIG-IP with OpenStack LBaaS.
- F5 LBaaS Driver
- F5 OpenStack Agent.
The F5 LBaaS driver communicates with F5 OpenStack Agent that will then use F5 iControl REST to update the BIG-IP configuration.
The following lab will first guide you through using both the OpenStack GUI/CLI.
You will then install the required software via an Ansible automation script.
