Getting Started
Getting Started
This chapter provides the basic workflow for getting started with a new deployment.
Basic steps:
1. Install the appliance.
2. Configure the management interface.
3. Configure the following basic network settings:
Administrator password
System date and time
Network interfaces
4. Test connectivity.
5. Complete product registration, install your license, and update the firmware.
6. Configure a basic load balancing policy.
7. Test the deployment with load to verify expected behavior.
8. Back up this basic configuration so that you have a restore point.
Configuration changes are applied to the running configuration as soon as you save them.
Configuration objects are saved in a configuration management database. You cannot change the name of a configuration object after you have initially saved it.
You cannot delete a configuration object that is referenced in another configuration object (for example, you cannot delete an address if it is used in a policy).
