f5 physical to virtual migration

Hello -

i have a physical f5 - running 11.6 -- i want to migrate it to a vm -- i can provision a F5 on vmware and move ucs --

Question - how do i move the license - meaning should i start with a trial license - and once the config is migrated revoke the license from the physical unit and use it on the virtual appliance

    Contact your F5 sales person... I'm not sure it's possible to do what you want, but they will know for sure.

  • Hi mawan_revera,


    You might be able to do what's called an "allow move" which let's you move the license from one device to another. That requires F5 to make a change to allow the move. That being said, I would agree with Hamish that you should either reach out to your F5 sales person or call into Support and ask if it's possible to have your current license moved.
