Step 6. Specify IP Address Settings
At the IP Assignment step of the wizard, choose whether you want to assign a dynamic or a static IP address to the backup appliance.
To assign a static IP address, you can either reserve a new address or specify an existing one:
- To reserve a new IP address, select the (create new) option from the Use the following address drop-down list.
- To assign an existing IP address, select it from the Use the following address drop-down list. For an IP address to be displayed in the list of available static IP addresses, it must be reserved in Google Cloud as described in Google Cloud documentation.
You can use only IPv4 regional IP address as static external IP addresses for backup appliances.
