Deployments using the Solution Manager when we can't SSH into our Load Balancer server

Hey all I am trying to setup our Solution Manager for deployments but have recently learned that we cannot SSH into our load balancer (F5) server. I have not found a way to use the Solution Manager without the disable/enable load balancer scripts and was wondering if anyone has come upon this issue and found a solution? My environment is as follows. DEV: 1 server (no load balance) QA: 1 cluster of 2 servers PROD: 1 cluster of 2 servers

Hi, In Denodo Solution Manager, Deployment Script is an Operating system based script so you can use any of the protocol supported by F5 instead of SSH. I have gone through the F5 documentation, I have seen that [icontrol Rest API](https://devcentral.f5.com/s/articles/icontrol-rest-cookbook-24575) which interacts between the client and the F5. So, it allows you to enable or disable node session by passing commands. You can refer to the document [APIRef_tm_ltm_node](https://clouddocs.f5.com/api/icontrol-rest/APIRef_tm_ltm_node.html) to get more information related nodes. For example, to disable the test_node node > <PATCH>/mgmt/tm/ltm/node/~Common~test_node -d '{"session":"user-disabled"}' Using Rest API you can write your own deployment script and import it in the environment. Just keep in mind that the Deployment script must work fine in a target environment, that is, no operating system failures. You can also have look at [Deploying Revisions](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/solution_manager/administration/promotions/deploying_revisions/deploying_revisions) of the Solution Manager Administration Guide for more information related to Deploying. For more information, you can refer to the documents[ Common iControl REST API command examples](https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K13225405). If you are a user with valid support access, I would suggest you raise a support case in the [Denodo Support Site](https://support.denodo.com/). Hope this helps!
