Assign Fixed IP Address to Instance

A fixed IP address can be used when you want to make the instance available on multiple networks. When an instance stops or crashes, the fixed IP address that has been assigned to it at the time of instance creation is released. When the instance is restarted, then the instance is assigned a new fixed IP address.

You can manually assign a fixed IP address to an instance.

You must be a self-service user or an administrator to perform this operation.

To assign a fixed IP address to an instance, follow the steps given below.

  1. Log in to Clarity.
  2. Click Instances in the left panel.
  3. Select the checkbox for the instance to which you want to assign a floating IP address.
  4. Click Network on the toolbar seen above the list of instances. Assign Fixed IP
  5. Click Add Fixed IP.
  6. Select a network, subnet and port from which the fixed IP address is to be assigned.
  7. Click Add.

A fixed IP is assigned to the instance from the selected subnet. The instance can now be accessed within the network by using the new fixed IP address.
