So, you need more IPs assigned to your Virtual Machine? No problem! As long as you have spare IPs purchased in your Resource Pool you will be able to follow the guide below to get this done:

1. Select "Services - Flexible Resources" from the side bar

2.  Select the Resource Pool you wish to work with

3. Click on the VM you'd like to edit 

3. In the "Network" tab select "IPs"

4. Ensure you have IPs free (highlighted) then click "Assign New IP Address" 

5. Select the Interface it should be assigned to (On the VM) then select the IP Subnet you'd like your IP from (Any is fine), then click "Assign New IP Address"

6. Now that the IP has been assigned you must rebuild the network for it to take effect.

NOTE - This will take the VM offline for a few minutes whilst the changes are made 

7. The new IP should now be usable

Deleting IPs

You can remove IPs from the server by clicking the "Delete" icon against the associated IP, this will also require a Network Rebuild to finalize, use step 6 in the above Guide to perform the rebuild. 

NOTE - There is a 512 IP per VM limit within OnApp
