CloudBoot IPs

CloudBoot IPs are IP addresses which compute resources will acquire via DHCP when they boot. To add IP addresses you first need to create IP nets which in their turn contain IP address ranges to which you can add individual IPs.


View CloudBoot IP Addresses


To view the list of CloudBoot IP addresses:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > AdminSettings menu.
  2. Click the Compute Resources icon, then click CloudBoot IPs tab.
  3. On the screen that appears, you'll see the list of CloudBoot IP nets which include IP ranges. Click the IP net to view the IP addresses in it with their details:
    • IP Address - the CloudBoot IP address
    • CloudBoot Compute Resource - click the compute resource label to view its details
    • Compute Zone - click the compute zone label to view its details

To delete an IP address, click the Delete icon next to the required IP address. You cannot delete those IP addresses that are assigned to compute resources and/or compute zones.
