Re: How to assign public IP address to VNIC (instance)


Hi Funasaki-san,

I think the following works.

# nova-manage floating create HOST_NAME FLOATING_IP(global/public IP)
# euca-associate-address -i INSTANCE_ID FLOATING_IP

Here, please note that Nova does not assign a public IP to an instance
on the launch time automatically like the case of Eucalyptus (or Amazon EC2).
