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®
GTM™ 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 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 IPv6 NoError Response list, select
With this option enabled, the system responds faster to IPv6 requests for which it does
not have AAAA records configured.
In the IPv6 NoError TTL field, type the number of seconds that the
local DNS servers consider the IPv6 NoError response to be valid. When you set this value, you
must enable the IPv6 NoError Response setting as well.
From the Pool list, select the pools that this wide IP uses for load
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.
