vMX100 in Azure - Change Dynamic to Static public IP

Hello,

 

Once you deploy a vMX 100 to Azure, I am aware it deploys it to a Locked Resource Group.

 

However the Public IP it assigns to the vMX is Dynamic, meaning if the device is ever rebooted in Azure it will change the Public IP.

 

I have not found a way to make this static.

 

I want to make it static due to the amount of VPN's now configured to go to it.

 

Has anyone come across this as a problem or has been able to unlock the resource group to change the IP to Static?

Kind of a big deal

Might want to consider using DDNS instead of IP address since its dynamic.

@NolanHerring- Thanks Nolan,

 

vMX doesn't have Security Appliance > Configure > Addressing & VLANs.So unable to set Dynamic DNS.


I wonder if setting a subdomain of the client's main domain to point to the IP of the vMX in Azure may be a way to go - but not entirely sure. Will test it out.

@PhilipDAth- Thanks Philip,

 

In Azure the resource group where the IP is located is locked - and I am unable to remove the lock to set the IP to static.

 

-----------------------

 

Seems the vMX is stripped back version of physical MX and a lot of the functionality is not available in the vMX.
