Can I build a LAB for APM in VMware workstation and till what extent I can use features of APM in VM LAB?
If some has already built a lab for APM please share the topology and the resources used like except APM VM what other servers are required for LAB.
Thanks in advance!!
Yes you can run your VM on Workstation. As for other servers, I used the f5 vlab LAMP server as a pool member for a test resource/ldap server/CA Authority.
I also used VM's in the cloud platforms (trial versions on AWS, Azure, and GCP) to side step the licensing situation for Windows. I used Windows Servers to lab things I couldn't do on the f5 vlab LAMP server such as RDP/AD/Kerberos/NTLM integration with APM.
If you have topology or any book for building a LAB can you please share with me. I am like beginner for APM only worked on f5 LTM.
That would be very helpful.
It would be the same type of topology you're used to with LTM. You'll have LAMP/Windows servers sitting on an internal VLAN, and the VIP/VS that you authenticate to APM with will be tied to an external VLAN.
Thanks for the quick response. Can you please elaborate or share any link how to integrate AD server for authentication in LAB.
