Adding F5 Networks BIG-IP systems

To manage F5 Networks BIG-IP accounts, you need to specify a valid local administrative account and password. See Specifying a local administrative account for more information. The account used must be an account in the F5 Networks BIG-IP Administrator role.

To manage the password of other users and root accounts, the administrative account must have the F5 Networks BIG-IP role Administrator. Although users with the User Manager role can change passwords for users that do not have the Administrator role, it cannot change the password for users in the Administrator role.

For additional information, see:

For any account you add, you can also choose whether or not you want Privileged Access Service to manage the account password. If you select Manage this credential, Privileged Access Service automatically resets the password after the account and system are added and each time the account is checked in.
