Working with VMware Orchestrator 5.5:
Attempting a connection using "Attach LTM" plugin fails when "Use REST API flag" is set to 'no'. The plugin finishes successfully; however, the status shows "unconnected".
Attempting a connection using "Attach LTM" plugin succeeds when "Use REST API flag" is set to 'yes'.
Also, connections to LTM using the Orchestrator REST plugins work properly.
These connections pass through a firewall.
LTM version 11.5.1 in use.
What changes for the attempted connection when not using the REST API flag ?
Is there any setting on the LTM load balancer that can be modified to achieve success?
Make sure that you have updated the REST framework on the BIG-IP to which you are connecting first.
This guide will tell you how to update the REST framework
