Automating Load-Balancer VIP Reservation and Release

I have a scalable 3-node NGINX cluster which I use for demoing various capabilities in the Morpheus platform. One small heartache I have come across is the current inability to select the virtual server IP address from an IP pool which Morpheus is aware of.

Luckily for me, Morpheus’ automation engine lets me build in workarounds for functionalities that are not yet available within the platform proper. I decided to write this up for anyone else who is looking for an answer to this. Hopefully, it is helpful to others.

You won’t need the same environment as me as the functionality should work across clouds and network integrations. You could even test this using a single node something or other.
