BIG-IQ Centralized Management
Installing required BIG-IQ system components
- Log in to the BIG-IQ system command line as the root user.
Establish SSH trust between the BIG-IQ system and the managed BIG-IP
ssh-copy-id root@<BIG-IP Management IP Address>This step is optional. However, if you do not establish trust, you will be required to provide the BIG-IP system's root password multiple times.
Navigate to the folder in which the required files reside:
Run the installation script:
./update_bigip.sh –a admin –p <password> <BIG-IP Management IP Address>Where <password> is the administrator password for the BIG-IP device.Note: The update_bigip.sh utility should not be used to update the REST framework on a version12.x.x BIG-IP device. Doing so will cause an incompatible version of the REST framework to be installed on the version 12.x.x BIG-IP device and that device will no longer be manageable by the BIG-IQ system.
The update_bigip.sh utility may be used on BIG-IP device versions 11.4.0 to 11.6.x.
Revoke SSH trust between the BIG-IQ system and the managed BIG-IP device:
ssh-keygen –R <BIG-IP Management IP address>This step is not required if you did not establish trust in step 2.
