You should be aware of certain iRule configuration concepts as they relate to administrative partitions:
- An iRule can reference any object, regardless of the partition in which the referenced object
resides. For example, an iRule that resides in partition_a can contain a
pool statement that specifies a pool residing in partition_b.
- You can remove iRule assignments only from virtual servers that reside in the current Write
partition or in partition Common.
- Note that you can associate an iRule only with virtual servers that reside in the current
Write partition or in partition Common.
- You can associate an existing iRule with multiple virtual servers. In this case, the iRule
becomes the only iRule that is associated with each virtual server in the current
Write partition. Because this command overwrites all previous iRule
assignments, F5 does not recommend use of this command.
