Setting a Static IP for a Cluster
This tutorial will show you how to create a minikube cluster with a static IP.
- minikube v1.29.0 or higher
- Docker or Podman driver
Selecting a static IP
The static IP must be IPv4, private, and the last octet must be between 2-254 (X.X.X.2 - X.X.X.254).
Valid static IPs:
10.0.0.2 - 10.255.255.254
172.16.0.2 - 172.31.255.254
192.168.0.2 - 192.168.255.254
--static-ip flag on
minikube start to set the static IP.
Note: You cannot add a static IP to an existing cluster, you have to delete and recreate the cluster with the flag.
