Overview: Integrating BIG-IP DNS (formerly GTM) with other BIG-IP systems on a Setting Up a BIG-IP DNS Redundant System Configuration. Hi, Does anyone have any example GTM configurations to provide GSLB to LTMs? and reading this guide: Having said that, here are some simple configuration commands via tmsh for configuring a GTM for initial use. Integrating BIG-IP GTM Into a Network with BIG-IP LTM Overview: Configuring how and when GTM saves configuration changes GTM never saves changes to the configuration (manual save required).

A wide IP maps a fully-qualified domain name FQDN to one or more pools of virtual servers that host the content of a domain. With the ZoneRunner utility, you can: Things might have changed, but in the current documentation I find the following:. Sign Up Login My Support. With the ZoneRunner utility, you can:.

A link is a logical representation of a physical device router that connects your network to the Internet. If this is not the case, please contact devcentral f5. A good, concise example. About virtual servers A virtual server is a specific IP address and port number that points to a resource on the t5.

The start of authority resource record, SOA, starts every zone file and gukde that a nameserver is the best source of information for a particular zone.

Getting Started with BIG-IP DNS (formerly GTM)

A third option might be for GTM to send a request to the data center that is located closest to the client’s source address. This record must be the only one associated with the alias name. The first name field specifies the zone that is served by the nameserver that is specified in the nameservers name field.


In the case of host servers, this IP address and port number likely point to the resource itself. The materials above should prove instructive for this purpose. Configuragion can define persistence for the distributed application, ensuring that a user, who accesses the distributed application uses the same resources during a single session.

AskF5 | Manual: BIG-IP Global Traffic Manager: Load Balancing

BIG-IP systems with prober pools. Most load balancing methods divide DNS name resolution requests among available pools or virtual servers. These records are used for reverse name lookups. Probe using ICMP pings. Perform this procedure on only the active system.

There are a number of variables related to what you’re asking for. You must be logged in to answer. Whenever the local nameserver starts, it queries a root nameserver in the hint zone file to obtain the most recent list of root nameservers. If the active confituration goes offline, the standby unit immediately assumes responsibility for managing DNS traffic.

About Prober pool status The status of a Prober pool also indicates the status of the members of the pool. Configuring virtual server availability to be dependent on the status of configuratuon virtual servers Ensure that multiple virtual servers are configured on the server.

Using this procedure, create two servers on the active BIG-IP system, one that represents the active system and one that represents the standby system. Using wildcard characters in wide IPs to minimize maintenance tasks Determine the domain names and aliases for which you want to configure wide IPs. A virtual server is a combination confituration IP address and port number that points to a specific resource on the network. When you want to avoid sending too much outbound traffic to a router with lower bandwidth, configure the links that represent your routers for ratio weighting.

Replies using TCP Cisco routers: The nameserver resource record, NS, defines the nameservers for a given domain, creating a delegation point and a subzone.

Stub zones are similar to secondary zones, except that stub zones contain only the NS records for the zone. When you want the BIG-IP system to display statistics that reflect link bandwidth usage, configure duplex billing. These statistics reflect only the number of Probe requests and their success or failure.

You can use one or more question marks or asterisks, or both question marks and asterisks in a wide IP name or alias.
