Migration from F5 to Cisco ACE

Hi All,

I am preparing for a migration from F5 to ACE. Can someone help me with a technical approach that I should take to make this migration successful.

Re: Migration from F5 to Cisco ACE

Hi,

What I would do:

Is it a kind of copy/paste migration?

Is it layer2/layer3 design?

- list all IP addresses for the ACE (physical for the vlan interfaces + aliases (VRRP like address))

- list all VIP addresses + services (fe. http, dns, ftp...)

- list all real servers that will be used, ordened per VIP (serverfarm)

- list all probes per real server

- list all specific exceptions (fe. stickiness, cookie insertion, NAT...)

- list all network parameters (fe. static routes, default routes, ACLs for management...)

I think this should help you already. The rest depends on the design and complexity that is in your setup.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Dario

Re: Migration from F5 to Cisco ACE

I am curious if you have run into the predictive load balancing method on F5 that does not exist in the ACE. What did you end up using instead?

Thanks..
