Apply for or release an Internet address

Last Updated: Apr 05, 2018

By default, a DRDS instance is assigned an intranet address, which allows applications and MySQL clients on ECS to connect to DRDS databases through an intranet. If you want to access the DRDS instance through a non-Alibaba-Cloud network, apply for an Internet address for the DRDS instance. When the Internet address is no longer required, release it in a timely manner.

Apply for an Internet address

Prerequisites

  • The DRDS instance is an exclusive instance, not a shared instance.

  • Before applying for an Internet address, make sure you have set an IP address whitelist for all the DRDS databases under the instance to prevent access from IP addresses other than application IP addresses.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the DRDS console and go to the details page for the DRDS instance.

  2. In the Connection Information area, click Apply for Public IP Address.

  3. In the confirmation window that appears, click OK to generate an Internet address.

Release an Internet address

  1. Log on to the DRDS console and go to the details page for the DRDS instance.

  2. In the Connection Information area, click Release Public IP Address.

  3. In the confirmation window that appears, click OK to release the Internet address.
