Increase the static IP pool#

If you run out of IP addresses, you can increase the static IP pool size to accommodate the demand.

The network scope can be any size needed, from two addresses to the maximum useable IP addresses for the subnet.

Before you begin#

Before you begin, ensure that you:

  • Log in to the Rackspace Services for VMware Cloud portal as a System Administrator or that you have a role with an equivalent set of rights.

  • Create a data center group network.

How to get started#

  1. Log in to the Rackspace Services for VMware Cloud portal.

  2. Click Networking.

  3. Select a network for which you want to increase the static IP pool.

  4. Click Static IP Pools.

Static IP pool

You can modify an existing IP address range or add a new IP address range. IP address ranges in a static IP pool do not have to be contiguous.

For example, an IP range of 192.168.100.10-192.168.100.20 with another IP range of 192.168.100.130-192.168.100.210 is acceptable.
