Ensure that at least one global load balancing pool exists in the configuration
before you create a wide IP.
Create a wide IP configured in a manner where BIG-IP®
DNS returns an SOA record that contains a TTL with an IPv6 DNS
NoError response. With this configuration, the local DNS servers can cache a negative
response and thus provide faster responses to DNS queries.
On the Main tab, click
The Wide IP List screen opens.
The New Wide IP List screen opens.
From the General Properties list, select Advanced.
In the Name field, type a name for the wide IP.
Tip: You can use two different wildcard characters in the wide IP name: asterisk
(*) to represent several characters and question mark (?) to represent a single character.
This reduces the number of aliases you have to add to the configuration.
From the Type list, select a record type for the wide IP.
Note: Once created, both the record type and name cannot be changed.
From the NoError Response list, select
With this option enabled, the system responds faster to requests for which it does not
have AAAA records configured.
In the NoError TTL field, type the number of seconds that the local
DNS servers consider the NoError response to be valid. When you set this value, you must enable
the NoError Response setting as well.
In the Pools area, for the Pool List setting, select the pools that
this wide IP uses for load balancing.
The system evaluates the pools based on the wide IP load balancing method
From the Pool list, select a pool.
A pool can belong to more than one wide IP.
