Cloud Servers - Attaching and Detaching Networks


You can attach (add) or detach (disconnect) networks from existing Next Gen Cloud Servers by using the Cloud Networks API or the Cloud Control Panel.

This article describes how to attach and detach networks by using the Cloud Control Panel. Please be aware that if you attach networks to or detach them from a cloud server, you might experience a brief interruption, usually lasting less than a minute, in traffic hitting your cloud server while networking is reset on the server.

To Attach (Add) a Network:

  1. Log in to the Cloud Control Panel at mycloud.rackspace.com.

  2. On the Cloud Servers page, click the server to which  you want to attach a network. The details page for that server is displayed.

  3. Scroll to the Networks section and click Add Network.

    A pop-up box lists the networks that you can attach to this server.

  4. Select a network and click Add Network.    

    You can also create a new cloud network and attach it to the server..

    After the network is attached, it is displayed in the list of networks for that server.

To Detach (Disconnect) a Network:

You can detach a network from the server from the same page under the Networks section. Please refer to the article below before you detach Public or ServiceNet interfaces from cloud servers. http://docs.rackspace.com/servers/api/v2/cn-devguide/content/networks.html

  1. Log in to the Cloud Control Panel at mycloud.rackspace.com.

    The details page for that server is displayed.

  3. In the Networks section, click the gear icon next to the network that you want to detach.

  4. In the pop-up box, click Disconnect Network.

After the network is detached from the server, it is no longer displayed in the list of networks for that server.
