The private IP reservation feature will prevent users from assigning reserved IPs to VMs within the platform. The platform does not display reserved IPs to allow users to select them for VMs. You can only assign reserved IPs to VMs from outside of Abiquo, for example, using a script. If you onboard a VM with a reserved IP, the platform logs a warning message.
To reserve private IPs:
The platform will list the VMs in the virtual datacenter. Optionally select VMs to indicate where the IPs might be used. Note that you must check that the VMs are able to use these IPs. This selection does not assign the IPs to VMs.
The platform will display a padlock symbol and the reason beside the IP reserved addresses.
