Hybrid CloudIncludes containers, datacenter, private cloud, and public cloud environments.

Virtual IP (VIP)

The Virtual IP (VIP) refers to an IP address that resides within the same subnet as the database severs. The CCM communicates with the database server through this IP address. Use the VIP if you launch both the DB master and DB slave from the same VPC.

If using the VIP, choose an unused IP from one of the subnets within the VPC.


Caution

If you Edit Cloud Settings on the Cloud Region page (CCM UI > Admin > Clouds > Configure Region), you must save the changes to the CCO by clicking Configure Orchestrator and then Save to ensure that these changes are also propagated to CCOs.
