Specify Private IP address

Posted January 14, 2020 488 views

I’d like to know can I specify predefined private IP on a droplet?
For example change an address on interface using userdata or any provisioner.

The private IP is automatically assigned to the Droplet (when Private networking is enabled)from the pool of IP addresses of the same datacenter where the Droplet is hosted.

Hence configuring the predefined private IP wouldn’t be possible. Feel free to respond here or raise a support ticket.
