You need to get a license file from at https://activate.f5.com/license/ .
Before accessing to https://activate.f5.com/license , you need to prepare a registration key n’ a dossier file which are available on your LTM via Web.
Then generate a license file at https://activate.f5.com/license.

Finally paste a license file generated at F5 site on your LTM.
activation done.

Now you can configure LB setting!

CLI prompt will be changed from NO LICENSE to Active
Before activate
[root@localhost:NO LICENSE] config #

After activate
[root@localhost:Active] config #

license file will be stored in /config/bigip.license.
[root@localhost:Active] config # cat bigip.license
