Configure sensor (agentless) automation settings for an A10 load balancer

Use the following procedure to configure agentless settings for A10 load balancers.

Configure agentless settings for A10 load balancers

  1. Log in to the sensor host.

  2. Go to the sensor CLI directory.

    cd install_dir/cli

    Where install_dir is the installation directory for the sensor.

  3. Run the addagentless command.

    • On Linux:
      • For single configuration: ./addagentless.sh -type A10
      • For high availability configuration: ./addagentless.sh -type A10 -ha VRRPA
    • On Windows:
      • For single configuration: addagentless.bat -type A10
      • For high availability configuration: addagentless.bat -type A10 -ha VRRPA
    • On Docker:
      • For single configuration: docker exec -it <container-id/name> cli/addagentless.sh -type A10
      • For high availability configuration: docker exec -it <container-id/name> cli/addagentless.sh -type A10 -ha VRRPA

    Note: VRRPA's high availability configuration enables you to configure one primary management IP address and up to seven additional peer management IP addresses.

    When you enter the command, a series of prompts appears for each setting you need to enter. At each prompt, enter the specific settings for your load balancer and press Return.

Run the docker ps command to get the container name or ID and its operating status.

There are two ways to configure the agentless on docker:

  1. Without signing in to the docker sensor container:
    Run the docker exec -it <container-id/name> cli/addagentless.sh -type A10 or docker exec -it <container-id/name> cli/addagentless.sh -type A10 -ha VRRPA command.
  2. By signing in to the docker sensor container:
    1. Run the docker exec -it <container-id/name> bash command to get a bash shell in the container.
    2. Go to the sensor installation directory and run the cli/addagentless.sh -type A10 or cli/addagentless.sh -type A10 -ha VRRPA command.

For example:

addagentless.bat -type A10
