Move IP within a GCP VPC


gcp-vpc-move-ip [start | stop | monitor | meta-data | validate-all]


Resource Agent that can move a floating IP addresse within a GCP VPC by changing an entry in the routing table. This agent also configures the floating IP locally on the instance OS. Requirements :

- IP forwarding must be enabled on all instances in order to be able to terminate the route

- The floating IP address must be chosen so that it is outside all existing subnets in the VPC network

- IAM permissions (see https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/access/iam-permissions) : 1) compute.routes.delete, compute.routes.get and compute.routes.update on the route 2) compute.networks.updatePolicy on the network (to add a new route) 3) compute.networks.get on the network (to check the VPC network existence) 4) compute.routes.list on the project (to check conflicting routes)

Supported Parameters


Path to command line tools for GCP

(optional, string, default "/usr/bin/gcloud")


Named configuration for gcloud

(optional, string, default "default")


Floating IP address. Note that this IP must be chosen outside of all existing subnet ranges

Name of the VPC network

(required, string, default "default")


Name of the network interface

(optional, string, default "eth0")


Route name

(unique, optional, string, default "ra-gcp-vpc-move-ip")
