Hi. With new VPC feature, can I add existing and running droplet to VPC network without shutting it down (and taking snapshot)? Probably via some manual commands?

Thanks in advance.

Hello, @xrjMaker

You can’t migrate Droplets between VPC networks directly, but you can recreate a Droplet using a snapshot. Snapshots are on-demand images of Droplets. You can create new Droplets based on snapshots to create a copy of it in the same state.

You can find more information here: https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/networking/vpc/how-to/migrate-resources/#migrate-droplets-to-a-different-vpc-network
