How to restore droplet from other droplets snapshot or backup
I have a coreos droplet that I’d like to restore from an ubuntu image. I’m happy either with a fresh ubuntu install, a snapshot from a template server I’ve built, or backup from another ubuntu server.
It’s important that I retain the IPV6 address, hence I’d like to keep the droplet itself, just change the build.
The ‘destroy -> rebuild’ option only allows me to restore from previous backups.
I can’t see a way to use other snapshots directly or how to rebuild it from a fresh ubuntu image.
Is there any way to restore or rebuild that droplet?
