Moving, restoring or changing the IP address of the Management Node

These procedures explain how to change the IP address of your Management Node, or physically move your Management Node to a new host server, without losing your Pexip Infinity platform configuration or invalidating your Pexip Infinity licenses.

Before performing any of these procedures we recommend that you follow standard IT practices, as per your company policy. For example, ensure that you take a snapshot of the Management Node prior to making any changes, and if possible take offline backups of the VMs.

In all cases you will have a loss of service while you perform the maintenance procedure.

Note that these instructions only apply to on-premises deployments. For cloud-based deployments, if you need to change the IP address of the Management Node you must decommission your entire deployment, terminating all of the existing instances, and then redeploy your system.
