Predefined IP address for node

Hello! I’m facing issues with changed ip address for node after k8s cluster upgrade. My app needs to be whitelisted by external-resource based on a Source IP Address. So when cluster updates, node ip changes and app can’t make requests to external resource.

Hello @98f5b1fe5799477ba93f7a2c49dbf1

If you’re looking for a dedicated IP address for your Kubernetes cluster I believe this question which was asked before in the community will provide valuable information.

In general, the moment you create a Droplet/Load Balancer, you will be assigned a static IPv4 address automatically. Similarly, when you destroy the Droplet/Load Balancer, the IP address will be disassociated and will join the IP pool table. There is no way you can have one more Static IP address to the Droplet/Load Balancer or retain the same IP on our platform. Really sorry for the inconvenience!

Technically, you should just never destroy the LoadBalancer type Service in Kubernetes. Even if you don’t have any deployment or pod selectors set, just keep it around, to save the IP address.

The LB is roughly around $20 / month. So you’re paying $20/month for that IP. Provided you never destroy the LB type Service object in k8s, it will keep the LB on your account indefinitely.

Hope that this helps!
