How do I use a failover IP? (SyS/OVH)
So you Start (an OVH subsidary) is offering failover IP addresses with their dedicated servers (for €2/mo., maximum 5 IP's).
Now, IP addresses I'm familiar with; I have several with my Leaseweb dedicated server and I'm running different virtual machines on their own fixed IP's. SyS explains failover IP's here:
Make sure that your hosting system configuration is based on the failover IP and not on the fixed IP address of the server. This way, the entire configuration linked the FO IP will be saved on moving to another server.
- How do I set up my CentOS system not to use the fixed IP address of the server?
- Will I be able to use these IP addresses as just additional, fixed Ip addresses?
