How to start identical droplets under a load balancer

Alright, for my API server I want a load balancer with X droplets.

I don’t want to manually setup each droplet. Is there a way I can duplicate a droplet? Or easily automate the provisioning?

Hi there @dennisWhale,

What you could do is take a snapshot of your existing Droplet and then create a new Droplet from that snapshot, that way you will have an exact copy of your existing Droplet.

Here is a link to the official documentation on how to do that:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
