I am trying to run this new template, using also the APM feature.;
When I enable the APM module, I get the following error:
01070341:3: Virtual server /Common/F5excange-demo.app/F5excange-demo_combined_https references rule _sys_APM_ExchangeSupport_OA_BasicAuth which does not exist.
Any clue what is happening here?
Here is a link to step by step LB configuration using the F5 iApp for Exchange 2010 by Jaap Wesselius, Managing Consultant for inovativ uc in the Netherlands, Microsoft Exchange MVP and UC Specialist.

And a straightforward look at configuring SMTP load balancing in BIG-IP LTM. We have not added this to the Exchange iApp, but after so much exposure via Jaap's blog and his speaking sessions at MEC in Orlando recently, we may reconsider http://www.jaapwesselius.com/2012/1...th-f5-ltm/
Your feedback also welcome here!
The template states that it supports the following deployment scenario:
This BIG-IP Edge Gateway or APM will provide secure remote access to CAS
You can select this scenario to configure the BIG-IP as a BIG-IP Edge Gateway or APM that will use a single virtual server to provide proxy authentication and secure remote access to Exchange HTTP-based Client Access services without requiring the use of an F5 Edge Client. The traffic will be forwarded to another BIG-IP running LTM which provides advanced load balancing, persistence, monitoring and optimizations for those services.
However on an APM system when I try to use the iApp I just get
"We are sorry but you must license and provision the LTM module to use this template"
Slightly confused as the whole point is that there is a seperate LTM elsewhere.
On an 'APM Only' system how are you supposed to use the iApp to select the above scenario?

Mike, the message is a little misleading. You must go to System>Resource Provisioning and makre sure that LTM is provisioned (nominal is fine). Although LTM is not licensed, some of its "free" features are still required by the iApp.
Perfect, many thanks for the explanation, LTM provisioned (unlicensed) and the Template now works!
As you say very misleading, would be better if the message said it needs to be provisioned (even if not licensed in an APM/Edge scenario).
