Cannot assign multiple floating ip addresses???
Why can you not assign multiple floating ip addresses to a droplet? That defeats the purpose of them.
For example, I have Droplet A. IP = 22.214.171.124 with floating IP address 126.96.36.199.
Also, I have Droplet B. IP = 188.8.131.52 with floating IP address 184.108.40.206.
On each box, I always use the floating IP address so that if that droplet ever goes down, I can move the floating IP address to the other droplet and continue working. I have each droplet configured so that it can assume the respoisibility of the other one.
So, droplet A goes down. I simply assign the floating IP address “220.127.116.11” to droplet B. Wrong. Droplet B already has its own floating IP, so I cannot assign the floating IP from droplet A to droplet B, and I cannot remove the existing floating IP from droplet B because it is being used by everyone that uses droplet B.
Sure, I could create a NEW droplet, and assign it the floating IP … but then I have to actually build the new droplet and do that. That isn’t a very good solution.
Anyone have any thoughts on this? Agree? Disagree?
