1.3. Installing the F5 LBaaS AgentΒΆ

Two pieces of software are required to use F5 BIG-IP with OpenStack LBaaS.

  1. F5 LBaaS Driver
  2. 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.
