We wish to introduce some changes on our F5 VPN to some users, but not to all. They are all using the F5 BIG-IP Edge Client.
The change is that for those bunch of users we want to tick the "Dialup Entry/ Windows Logon Integration". How to do this? -> Tick that box, download the file and install it on the mentioned users? will that affect to other users who have got the BIG-IP Edge Client with the "Dialup Entry/ Windows Logon Integration" unticked
Please let me know
That is a global setting and it will apply to everyone. If not.. you can create seperate Access profiles for each set of users with Access ›› Connectivity / VPN : Connectivity : Profiles and then apply to access policy respectively.
Ok Thanks, If I tick that box "Dialup Entry/ Windows Logon Integration", for old user using previous BIG IP Edge client, Do they need to install the new client after the change? or the change will be applied to them automatically [they got a client with the Dial-up disabled] ?
Note: On "Edit Profile" I have "Component Update" set to "Yes", but not sure if that updates all the changes or what in particular?
It should update automaticaally when they connect to server using F5 VPN edge client.
Ok Thanks, but I need to know for sure: Is that documented or said explicitly by F5 anywhere.
We have quite a lot of users, do they need to download a new client and install it again for this feature to be allowed "Dialup Entry/ Windows Logon Integration", or will that automatically be enable the next time they open the BIG IP Edge client?
I suggest you get an official email from F5 and get your management approvals and then proceed with change.
Please refer this on automatic update:
"The successful automatic update of the BIG-IP Edge Client application and components depends on any of the following conditions:
The BIG-IP APM or Edge Gateway system is upgraded, and the BIG-IP Edge Client or BIG-IP Edge Client components are updated.
When the user device installed the BIG-IP Edge Client configuration, the installation had the automatic update feature (Component Update) set to yes (default setting)."
Hope this helps.
Yes, I came across that article, but it is very confusing. as I think that updates set to yes refers to updates on software version, not on options in the "Customise Package".
when I make a change on the "Customise Package", it doesn't reflect automatically when I connect back again using the same BIG IP Edge Client.
I invite you to try
