4 Executive summary Load balancers are one of the most critical pieces of infrastructure in a server farm. As with all other infrastructure, they must be administered. Many environments already have HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack (RDP) deployed, so it can make sense to leverage this tool for load balancer administration. This white paper shows how to set up a Secure SHell (SSH) link between an RDP deployment server and an F5 Networks BIG-IP load balancer and how to integrate BIG-IP administration into RDP. Once the SSH link has been set up, it is possible to create a wide variety of administrative scripts for load balancer configuration. Readers should have some familiarity with load balancing devices and with SSH administration. Introduction Located at or near the edge of the network, load-balancing technologies are becoming an increasingly important part of any enterprise IT installation and can be valuable even in smaller environments. Sometimes, however, it is difficult to integrate load-balancer management into the standardized administration tool suite adopted by a particular IT organization. This problem may be mitigated when the load-balancer vendor adopts industry standards and implements an Application Programming Interface (API) that exposes the appropriate administrative functionality. F5, for example, offers icontrol, an API that is accessible via a Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) interface that can be integrated with tools supporting web services. For implementations where a simpler solution is desirable, F5 also provides a load-balancer console to external users by means of Secure SHell (SSH). By leveraging SSH, customers can integrate scripted administration of the F5 BIG-IP load balancer into HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack (RDP). RDP RDP automates the process of deploying and provisioning server software, enabling organizations to quickly and easily adapt to changing business demands. Moreover, it provides a flexible scripting tool that allows customized installation and administration scripts to be written for nearly any data center need. This is a powerful capability that enables administrators to leverage the in-the-box functionality of RDP for more advanced purposes. The key component of RDP is the Integrated ProLiant Integration Module, which provides preconfigured scripts and integrated support software. Features include: Instant, out-of-the-box functionality for HP ProLiant servers Advanced features for HP ProLiant server blades Support for Integrated Lights-Out (ilo) More information Additional information, with links to the Windows and Linux Editions of RDP, is available at F5 BIG-IP load balancer A complete overview of the BIG-IP product line is available on the F5 website at 4

5 Implementing the solution The solution proposed in this white paper integrates BIG-IP administration via the RDP Deployment Console. The solution is based on RDP Windows Edition. Prerequisites Two important considerations must be addressed prior to implementing this solution: The RDP deployment server must be able to route over a network to the BIG-IP load balancer. The load balancer must also be able to route back to the RDP deployment server. The load balancer must be configured so that it can resolve Domain Name System (DNS) addresses correctly. In an environment where servers have multiple IP addresses, the load balancer must resolve DNS names to IP addresses that can be used when adding the server to a load balancer pool. Note: The address for which DNS resolution must be enabled typically refers to the external or public IP addresses of servers with more than a single address. Refer to BIG-IP documentation for information on configuring DNS resolution on the load balancer. Leveraging SSH This solution leverages SSH to communicate between the RDP Deployment Console and the administrative console of the BIG-IP load balancer. BIG-IP BIGPIPE scripts can be written and deployed as jobs within the RDP Deployment Console, which requires an SSH client for Microsoft Windows. Note: These jobs make use of the text substitution feature of RDP so that server names can be incorporated dynamically into a script. This solution uses PuTTY, a remote client tool for Windows that supports SSH-1 and SSH-2; however, any Windows-compatible SSH client can be used, as long as it supports public-key authentication. Downloading PuTTY PuTTY can be downloaded at no charge from a number of different sites worldwide. The simplest way to find the site nearest you is to type putty download into your favorite web search engine and choose the appropriate link. Sample search links include the following: Google MSN Search AOL Search download%22 5

6 Yahoo Excite /-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/417/top Configuring the solution Perform the following steps to set up the solution: Logging in to the load balancer from the deployment server Enabling public key authentication on the deployment server Exporting a client private key to the load balancer Logging in to the load balancer from the deployment server Using the plink.exe tool that is included with the PuTTY installation, perform the following procedure to connect the deployment server to the load balancer via SSH: 1. Type the following from a command prompt: plink <BIG-IP administrative IP address> 2. Answer y (yes) when asked if you wish to cache the server s host key in the registry. 3. When you receive a username and password prompt, log in as a user with administrative privileges on the load balancer, as shown in Figure 1. Figure 1. Showing the initial interaction login via SSH You have successfully used SSH to log in for the first time from the RDP Deployment Console to the load balancer. Now, you must configure public key authentication on the RDP Deployment Console. Enabling public key authentication on the deployment server In order to support public key authentication, the load balancer s host key must be stored in the registry cache of the Local System user on the deployment server. The simplest way to achieve this is to create a temporary RDP job that executes a load balancer login from the Local System account. 6

7 Note: For more information, refer to Section 8 of the PuTTY Help file. Perform the following procedure to use RDP 1 to log in to the load balancer: 1. Create a new job. 2. Add a script to the job, as shown in Figure 2. Add the plink command as the only line in the script. Figure 2. Creating a script that invokes the plink command 3. Select Next. 1 RDP 2.2 was used in this example. 7

8 4. In the next Run Script dialog box (shown in Figure 3), retain all default values except Script Window, which should be changed to Normal. Figure 3. Changing the default value to display a normal script window 5. Select Finish. 8

9 6. Drag the job to the deployment server; in the example shown in Figure 4, the script Test is dragged to server SAERDP in the RDP Deployment Console. Figure 4. Dragging the new job to the deployment server 7. A similar window to that shown in Figure 1 appears on the RDP Deployment Console; in this case, however, it is the Local System account that is attempting to log in to the load balancer. Respond just as you did previously to cache the server s host key in the Local System account s registry. IMPORTANT: Step 7 is necessary because BIGPIPE configuration jobs will run on the deployment server. Thus, in this configuration, these jobs will run in the context of the Local System account. 9

10 Exporting a client private key to the load balancer The next step is to generate a client private key and export it to the load balancer so that authentication can occur without a password. Perform the following procedure: 1. Run PuTTYgen, a key generator utility that installs with PuTTY. This utility can be launched from the Start Menu. 2. Select Choose Key Generate Key Pair; follow the on-screen instructions, as shown in Figure 5. Figure 5. Generating a public/private key pair, moving the mouse to create randomness 3. After you have generated sufficient randomness, select Save private key to export the newlygenerated private key. IMPORTANT: Export the key without a pass phrase. 10

11 4. Copy the text in the Public key for pasting into OpenSSH authorized_keys file window (as shown in Figure 6); paste this text into a text file named authorized_keys. Figure 6. Generating a public/private key pair 11

12 5. Copy the authorized_keys file to the load balancer specifically, to the $HOME/.ssh directory for the account used when logging in to the load balancer (root, in this example). The simplest way to copy this file is through the PSCP 2 utility that installs with PuTTY, as shown in Figure 7. Figure 7. Copying the authorized_keys file to the load balancer 6. The environment is now ready to support public key authentication. To test this capability, type the following in a command box: plink -ssh -l root -i "C:\Program Files\PuTTY\f5privatekey_2.ppk" The SSH server on the load balancer no longer issues a password prompt. At this point RDP configuration jobs can be generated to automatically configure the load balancer pool. Using RDP jobs to administer the load balancer Fundamentally, the following two tasks are required to administer a load balancer: Add a server to an existing load balancer pool Remove a server from a pool This white paper documents how to use the BIGPIPE command line utility available on all BIG-IP load balancers to add members to or delete members from a pool. Note: Since BIGPIPE is being used, any BIG-IP configuration task can be accomplished with the appropriate script. 2 An SCP client, for secure file copying 12

13 Adding a server The following procedure adds a server to an existing load balancer pool: 1. Create a new RDP job named BIGPIPE Add Member. 2. Add a single Run Script task to the job. 3. Enter the following script: "C:\Program Files\PuTTY\plink" -ssh -l root -i "C:\Program Files\PuTTY\myprivatekeyfile.ppk" bigpipe pool my_pool add {member %#*"select replace([name],' ','') from computer where computer_id={id}"%.mydomain.com:http} "C:\Program Files\PuTTY\plink" -ssh -l root -i "C:\Program Files\PuTTY\ myprivatekeyfile.ppk" bigpipe node %#*"select replace([name],' ','') from computer where computer_id={id}"%.mydomain.com:http monitor use my_monitor Items shown in bold type in this script (such as myprivatekeyfile.ppk) must be replaced with the specific items applicable to your environment. The rest of the script is generic. Of particular interest are the %#*"select replace([name],' ','') from computer where computer_id={id}"% sections of the script. These query strings are dynamically replaced with the name of the computer against which the script is being run; thus, when the script is dragged to a particular computer, that computer s name is substituted for the query texts. The end result passes the computer s name as a parameter for a BIGPIPE command to be executed on the load balancer. 4. After entering the script, select Next. 13

14 5. In the resulting dialog box (shown in Figure 8), select Locally on the Deployment Server for the Script Run Location to avoid the inconvenience of configuring public key SSH authentication for every server you might wish to configure. Figure 8. Selecting the option to run the script locally on the Deployment Server 6. You are now ready to run the script; select Finish. Deleting a member The procedure for deleting a member from a load balancer pool is similar to the above procedure for adding a member. In this example, the delete job is named BIGPIPE Delete Member; the script is as follows: "C:\Program Files\PuTTY\plink" -ssh -l root -i "C:\Program Files\PuTTY\ myprivatekeyfile.ppk" bigpipe node %#*"select replace([name],' ','') from computer where computer_id={id}"%.mydomain.com:http monitor delete "C:\Program Files\PuTTY\plink" -ssh -l root -i "C:\Program Files\PuTTY\myprivatekeyfile.ppk" bigpipe pool my_pool delete {member %#*"select replace([name],' ','') from computer where computer_id={id}"%.mydomain.com:http} 14

15 Conclusion This white paper shows how to set up an SSH link between an RDP deployment server and an F5 BIG- IP load balancer and how to integrate BIG-IP administration into RDP, and includes two sample administration scripts. Once the SSH link has been set up, it is possible to configure a wide variety of administrative scripts for load balancer configuration; indeed, any administrative activity that can be executed through the BIGPIPE command or through any other command supported by the load balancer can be scripted to run through RDP. 15
