Steps to deploy BIG-IP VE

To deploy the BIG-IP® Virtual Edition (VE) system on KVM, you will perform these tasks.
Step Details
1 Choose the license you want to buy, the BIG-IP VE modules you want, and the throughput you need. See SOL14810: Overview of BIG-IP® VE license and throughput limits on the AskF5™ Knowledge Base (http://support.f5.com) for details.
2 Confirm that you are running a hypervisor version that is compatible with a BIG-IP VE release. See Virtual Edition and Supported Hypervisors Matrix on http://support.f5.com for details.
3 Verify that the host hardware meets the recommended requirements.
4 If you plan to use SR-IOV, enable it on the hypervisor.
5 Download a BIG-IP VE image and deploy it.
6 Assign a management IP address to the virtual machine.
After you complete these tasks, you can log in to the BIG-IP VE system and run the Setup utility to perform basic network configuration.
