Description

For some scenarios, you may want more than one private IP associated with a cloud server. While the Control Portal does not offer this ability directly, customers can leverage Cloud Blueprints to achieve it. Note that while you can follow these steps to add a new private IP, there is no self-service way to remove a private IP.
