How to restore a snapshot from a different droplet.
I have multiple droplets all on AMS3.
I have a snapshot of the droplet A, and I’ve created the droplet B from A’s snapshot . Now I’ve made changes to the droplet A, I’ve made a second A’s snapshot, but I can’t restore that second snapshot to the droplet B because it only appears on A’s restore tab.
The only alternative I find is to destroy and create again the droplet, but I will lose my IP.
I can’t think of any technical limitation of restoring A’s snapshots to B, as A and B are the same since B is created from an A snapshot.
Is there any limitation, or it’s simply not implemented? It looks like a very simple feature to add.
