Reattaching Flexible IPs makes instance/s inaccessible


I have a DEV1-M instance which I wanted to upgrade.

So I created a backup, and then a new instance from that backup, attaching the same flexible IP to the new instance.

But I was never able to connect: ssh: connect to host a.b.c.d port 22: Connection refused.

Then I tried to revert everything, turned the old instance back on and reattached the IP.

Now I can’t access either the new or old instances. Dang.

Has anyone any positive experience with Flexible IPs?

It seems that the SSH service is not running on your node. Have you migrated the instance as indicated in this documentation: ?
