Manage IPs

Manage IP Addresses

From Infinicenter Console, you can track the assignment of IP addresses to virtual machines and physical servers within the Enterprise Cloud. An IP address assigned to one server cannot be duplicated and assigned to another server within the Enterprise Cloud application.

Note: Assigning an IP address to a device does not configure an IP address change within the guest operating system on the server. You must also enter the server's operating system and perform the necessary configuration change to add the IP address within the guest operating system running on the server.

Some IP addresses can be associated with other features within the Enterprise Cloud console. These features will be indicated by the following after the address.

(NS) Node Service
(FR) Firewall Rule
(LOG) Firewall Logging Server
(AS) Network Assigned to Server
(CRN) Custom RNAT
(R) Reserved
