Appendix A Deployment Best Practices Topics: • Best practices for deploying BIG-IP VE on VMware .

Live migration of BIG-IP VE while the virtual machine (VM) is processing traffic could produce unexpected results. perform live migration of BIG-IP VE virtual machines (using VMware vMotion™) on idle BIG-IP VE virtual machines only. if you are using VMware Dynamic Resource Scheduler (DRS). Perform live migration of BIG-IP VE virtual machines on idle BIG-IP VE virtual machines only. if the hypervisor has a 3 GHz core speed. Live migration of BIG-IP VE virtual machines VMware DRS environments Resource reservations Time synchronization 18 . Note that units within a redundant system configuration must share a common time synchronization source. Together. to prevent inconsistent system behavior. or. You can do this either by configuring NTP within BIG-IP VE or by selecting the Synchronize guest time with host check box within vSphere Client. Configure all BIG-IP VE systems to use an external time synchronization source. Live migration of BIG-IP VE while the virtual machine is processing traffic could produce unexpected results.Deployment Best Practices Best practices for deploying BIG-IP VE on VMware When deploying BIG-IP® Virtual Edition (VE) on a VMware host. these reservations normally prevent system instability on heavily loaded hosts and are considered minimal. Issue Redundant system configuration Recommendation Run the two units of an active/standby pair on separate physical hosts. Disable automatic migrations by adjusting the DRS Automation Level to Partially Automated. the reservation of a virtual machine with two CPUs can be only 6 GHz or less. You can accomplish this in two ways: either manually create a virtual machine peer on each host. and configuring all VMware hosts to share a single NTP time server or set of related NTP time servers. The CPU reservation can be up to 100 percent of the defined virtual machine hardware. For example. Manual. create a DRS rule with the option Separate Virtual Machine that includes each unit of the BIG-IP® VE redundant pair. or Disabled on a per VE basis. By default. In DRS environments. BIG-IP VE is deployed with a 2 GHz CPU and 2 GB of memory reservation. you should follow these best practices.

Appendix B Unsupported BIG-IP Features Topics: • BIG-IP VE unsupported features .

The following BIG-IP® features are not supported by BIG-IP® VE.Unsupported BIG-IP Features BIG-IP VE unsupported features BIG-IP® VE does not support the following BIG-IP system or hypervisor features. • Optional BIG-IP system modules. such as: • • WebAccelerator™ Bridging protocols. such as: • • • Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) • • • Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) Hard-wired failover Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 The following VMware features are not supported by BIG-IP VE: • • VMware Fault Tolerance technology vmmemctl memory balloon driver 20 .

conf. Note that the two units of a BIG-IP VE redundant system configuration must share the same time synchronization source. Lack of VMXNET3 availability Use of VLAN groups The VMXNET3 driver can become unavailable after you suspend and resume BIG-IP VE. you must configure these properties to accept (rather than reject) the security policy exceptions on the vSwitch.conf files within BIG-IP VE. The properties of the security policy that you need to configure are Promiscuous Mode and Forged Transmits. Time synchronization using If you want to use VMware Tools to enable time synchronization. Note that if you migrate the virtual machine or start a snapshot or cloned image of the virtual machine.conf and bigip_sys. If you want to use network time protocol (NTP) instead. Use of Single Configuration Copying an SCF from a VMware host system to an F5 hardware platform File (SCF) feature causes an error related to interface mismatching. For information about how to configure these options. see the VMware vSphere Client documentation. Use of VLAN groups with BIG-IP VE requires proper configuration of the VMware vSwitch. To view the actual TMM-to-vSwitch portgroup 22 . To work around this issue. Configuration of an OVF with additional interfaces When you deploy an OVF with more than five interfaces (one management interface and more than four TMM interfaces). To use the VLAN group feature. you must VMware Tools or NTP select the Synchronize guest time with host check box within vSphere protocol Client. To use the configured maximum resolution of 2360x1770 at 16 bits per pixel. Resetting the system will resolve the problem. Incorrect status of VMware VMware vSphere incorrectly shows the status of VMware Tools as Not Tools in vSphere Installed. the interface numbering might appear out of order. BIG-IP® VE should be working correctly with the hypervisor. save the bigip. see the VMware ESX® or ESXi® Configuration Guide.conf and bigpipe merge bigip_sys.Troubleshooting BIG-IP Virtual Edition Troubleshooting the BIG-IP Virtual Edition If you have followed the setup procedures in this document. Event log reports insufficient video RAM On VMware ESXi systems only. the status correctly shows as Unmanaged. because BIG-IP VE emulates BIG-IP hardware running in a virtual environment. You can ignore this message or follow the recommended action without adverse effects. increase the amount of video RAM allocated to this virtual machine by setting svga. For more information. you might encounter some issues as you try new configurations for BIG-IP VE that are outside the scope of this setup guide or altogether not supported in BIG-IP VE with certain hypervisor environments. On the new platform. and copy the files to the new platform. For any transparency mode other than Opaque. you must first disable time synchronization in VMware Tools by clearing the check box within vSphere Client. run the commands bigpipe merge bigip. you must configure security policies on the vSwitch.vramSize="16708800" in the virtual machine's configuration file. Use the following troubleshooting information to solve problems and learn of limitations that you might encounter with BIG-IP VE. the following event message is logged: The maximum resolution of the virtual machine will be limited to 1176x885 at 16 bits per pixel. You can verify that VMware Tools are installed by viewing the IP Address and DNS Name fields on the vSphere screen. However.

HA events due to BIG-IP VE inactivity If the VMware hypervisor runs the BIG-IP VE software for fewer than four minutes continuously (for example. If you change the number of virtual interfaces on the BIG-IP VE system after a binary MCPD database has been created. The system might note a failure and restart key system processes and trigger failover if within a high-availability (HA) group. the system does not detect the change when subsequently rebooted. the system logs media-related messages to the file /var/log/ltm.
