After you create an Anycast elastic IP address (EIP), you can associate it with an internal-facing Classic Load Balancer (CLB) instance. After you associate an Anycast EIP with an internal-facing CLB instance, clients can use the Anycast EIP to access the backend servers of the CLB instance over the Internet.

Prerequisites

An internal-facing CLB instance is created. The CLB instance must be deployed in a virtual private cloud (VPC). For more information, see Create a CLB instance.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Anycast EIP console.
  2. On the Anycast Elastic IP Addresses page, find the Anycast EIP that you want to manage and click Bind in the Actions column.
  3. In the Bind Anycast EIP to a Resource dialog box, set the following parameters.
    Associate an Anycast EIP with a cloud resource
    Parameter Description
    Instance Type Select the type of cloud resource with which you want to associate the Anycast EIP. Default value: SLB Instance.
    Note The associated instance must be an internal-facing CLB instance that is deployed in a VPC. Anycast EIPs can be associated only with internal-facing CLB instances that are deployed in VPCs.
    Resource Group Select the resource group to which the CLB instance belongs.
    Region Select the region where the CLB instance is deployed.

    You can associate an Anycast EIP with a Classic Load Balancer (CLB) instance that is deployed in the Singapore (Singapore) or Germany (Frankfurt) region.

    Select the instance to bind Select the CLB instance with which you want to associate the Anycast EIP.
    Notice When you associate an Anycast EIP with an internal-facing CLB instance that is deployed in a VPC, your service may be temporarily interrupted. We recommend that you associate the Anycast EIP with the CLB instance during off-peak hours or switch your workloads to another CLB instance first.
  4. Click OK.
