This topic describes how to associate a high-availability virtual IP address (HAVIP) with an elastic IP address (EIP). After the association, the HAVIP can provide services over the Internet through the EIP.


An EIP is created. For more information, see Apply for new EIPs.


  1. Log on to the VPC console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click HaVip Addresses.
  3. In the top navigation bar, select the region of the HAVIP.
  4. Find the HAVIP and click More > Bind EIP Address in the Actions column.
  5. In the dialog box that appears, select the EIP and click OK.
    The EIP to be associated must meet the following requirements:
    • The EIP and HAVIP must be deployed in the same region.
    • The EIP must be in the Available state.
