You can change your SnapCenter HA configuration from Network Load Balancing (NLB) to use F5 Load Balancer.


  1. Configure SnapCenter Servers for high availability using F5. Learn more.

  2. On the SnapCenter Server host, launch PowerShell.

  3. Start a session by using the Open-SmConnection cmdlet, and then enter your credentials.

  4. Update the SnapCenter Server to point to the F5 cluster IP address using the Update-SmServerCluster cmdlet.

    The information regarding the parameters that can be used with the cmdlet and their descriptions can be obtained by running Get-Help command_name. Alternatively, you can also refer to the SnapCenter Software Cmdlet Reference Guide.
