is it possible to deploy a vlan created in Configuration tab, Network->Vlan , in a big-ip device. Because in Deployment tab i don't find the option to evaluate&deploy the vlan.
The deployment of VLAN is done under the "Local Traffic & Network"
When you are deploying that module it will include all supported BIG-IQ LTM, network, and system items.
In the network, section VLAN will be part of the supported items (self-ip, route, route-domain, DNS resolver and interfaces are the other objects for version 5.2).
You can create the vlan in BIG-IQ, and push to BIG-IP devices.
Just create in the Networks/VLANs, then deploy in the Local Traffic/Network section
If you create the vlan in the BIG-IP, you can see in the BIG-IQ, but I don't see any option to push that to another BIG-IP.
Hi Leonardo, thank you for your reply. I couldn't deploy the vlan to big-ip because i was trying to do it "partially". Then i discovered that it is possible only when you do a "Evaluation --> Source -->All changes" .
Leonardo, VLANs are device specific configuration items. As such, you cannot push them to another device.
If you want to deploy a new VLAN to a device you must create it and define the BIG-IP device that it belongs to.
After that operation, a Local traffic and network deployment to that device will create the new VLAN.
Sorry, but I don't see the relation between shared/non-shared objects in BIGIP and BIGIQ functionality.
There is nothing technically that prevent BIGIQ from providing this functionality.
If I have a production pair in one data center and a DR pair in another one, both data centers with the same network addresses internally.
Would be helpfull to be able to copy a configuration from prod to DR, including VLANs and non-floating self IPs.
For example, I can only create HTTP/HTTPS monitors in the BIGIQ, and I can't clone any monitor (copy to another device).
A TCP monitor is a shared object, so using your logic, I should be able to do that in the BIGIQ.
Resuming, that is because the functionality was not implemented, and not because how BIGIP works.
