iRules and administrative partitions

You should be aware of certain iRule configuration concepts as they relate to administrative partitions:

  • An iRule can reference any object, regardless of the partition in which the referenced object resides. For example, an iRule that resides in partition_a can contain a pool statement that specifies a pool residing in partition_b.
  • You can remove iRule assignments only from virtual servers that reside in the current Write partition or in partition Common.
  • Note that you can associate an iRule only with virtual servers that reside in the current Write partition or in partition Common.
  • You can associate an existing iRule with multiple virtual servers. In this case, the iRule becomes the only iRule that is associated with each virtual server in the current Write partition. Because this command overwrites all previous iRule assignments, F5 does not recommend use of this command.
