List of prerequisite tasks

Before you begin configuring a BIG-IP system as a data center firewall, ensure that you have:

  • Assigned a management IP address to the BIG-IP system
  • Assigned a host name to the BIG-IP system
  • Specified passwords for the admin and root accounts
  • Created the necessary VLANs and associated self IP addresses
  • Configured the redundancy settings for Sync-Failover device group management (ConfigSync, failover, and mirroring addresses, as well as the default traffic groups)
  • Configured the DNS and NTP servers

Also, if you intend to use BIG-IP Protocol Security Module and BIG-IP Application Security Manager on the BIG-IP data center firewall, verify that these modules are licensed and provisioned on the system.

Once you have met these prerequisites, the BIG-IP system is ready to be configured as a data center firewall.
