If a compute resource fails or reboots, the system migrates edge servers to another compute resource, one server at a time. The order servers are migrated in is random. However, you can assign an edge server VIP status, and it will give that server priority in the migration queue.
To set or remove VIP status for an edge server:
- Go to your Control Panel > CDN > Edge Servers menu.
- Click next to the required edge server to change its VIP status.
When migrating edge servers, traffic flow interruption may occur. To migrate the edge servers, retain the subscription on the locations, and ensure that the traffic flow to the location is not stopped, do the following:
- Create a new edge server under the locations you used previously.
- Once it is approved in the marketplace, you can proceed with deleting the old edge servers.
