cloudnetworkIntroducing Network Hotplug

Now you can add, remove, or swap IPs on the fly, without the need to reboot your Linode.  Previously the network infrastructure rules that govern a Linode’s networking capabilities were only rebuilt on boot.  Now this is done automatically when you make changes, and without the need for a reboot, and will take effect within 60 seconds or so.

You will still need to adjust your running machine’s network configuration – best done via Lish.

    Also make sure to restart your DHCP client or reconfigure your static IP address after swapping IPs!
