Does anyone know if it is possible to move a public static IP address which currently is associated to a VM/Networkinterface to a LoadBalancer?
Our current server needs to be upscaled and made highavailable. In the current setup the IP address is used for 1 VM. I need to have 2 VM's handling the load, behind the same IP address.
My idea was to use the portal to disassiocate the public IP address from the current network interface, so it would be available to select it for a loadbalancer. But when I choose disassociate it states the IP address will be lost. I really need to avoid that.
Any suggestions are highly appreciated!
- This is ARM model
- I dont have problem setting up new VM's, the main objective here is to preserve the current public static IP address. This IP address is used by a client network with a lot of nodes who all have limited internet access. Each accessible IP address for those clients is whitelisted in a proxy server (which I don't have access to). So, changing the IP address will effectively block those clients to connect to the service on a new IP address.
