      Description

      Hi All,

      As a cloud administrator one would want to use static private IP address for their VMs running on Eucalyptus cloud.

      Some of the workloads running inside the VM depends on the private IP address and it gets changed every time the VM is started.

      These workloads can get benefited with static IP private address.

      At some sites it has been seen that there is a strict security control in place with a fixed inventory maintained for IP addresses assigned to the Virtual Machines, these sites would need the private IP to be static for management and security perspective.

      Currently AWS VPC provides private static IP address.

          Regarding this feature request, ensuring static IP in Eucalyptus today is done through the use of associating public IPs, not on the private side. We will continue to review this feature request as it pertains to the private side.

          At the LA meetup last week, we had a very similar request. The request was in 2 parts: the first one was to have the same private network space all the time, so static configuration could happen, and the other was to be able to specify which private network addressing to have per security group.

          +1 for this - there is a cost associated for a company to have a public IP address allocated to them, and they are running out! Static private IPs would make it far easier to maintain a private network, even manage your own local DNS server. At the moment it's quite frustrating to have the private IP address of an EBS-backed instance change when you stop/start it.
