How can I keep IP Address of destroyed droplet, after I recreate it using a snapshot from another droplet?
I have 5 droplets for a WebApp I’m building. The development has been kept on one droplet, and I now need to take a snapshot of this, and use the image to clone on the other 4 (regional) droplets. I understand how to do this, by destroying the existing droplets first (they have old data that I want to blitz), then recreating these droplets using the snapshot of the good droplet as a clone.
However, from what I’ve read, I will end up with new IP addresses doing this.
However, I really need to keep the existing IP Addresses that I have on my existing Droplets (that I will destroy / recreate), if at all possible. Is this possible?
