How to configure a failover IP

Reviewed on 08 April 2024Published on 13 April 2022

Only users who have completed the linking of their the Dedibox account to the Scaleway console are granted access to the Dedibox section within the Scaleway console. For detailed information on the migration process, please refer to our account linking documentation. If you cannot locate the Dedibox link in Scaleway's console side menu, you can use the Dedibox console to place orders, manage your Dediboxes, and access the related documentation.


Failover IPs are associated with the Dedibox product and cannot be moved to a different product category. For example, a failover IP can be moved to another Dedibox server, but it cannot be transferred to other service types like Load Balancers or Elastic Metal servers.

To complete the actions presented below, you must have:

  • A Scaleway account logged into the console
  • Owner status or IAM permissions allowing you to perform actions in the intended Organization
  • Linked your Dedibox and Scaleway accounts

The following pages provide information on how to configure a failover IP on Dedibox servers running various operating systems:

  • CentOS
  • Debian and Ubuntu Linux
  • FreeBSD
  • Windows Server
