It's not working if you assign more than 1 IP to a vm which it need the same vmac on all assigned ips (existing mac) it may cause trouble.
So im still waiting a staff response about this question...

We are using virtualizor, however its still bad because if you need to assign additional ip to VM you will need to use VM's existing mac to work. I just don't understand why a company such ovh cannot fix something like this to make to their customers easier work just like other companies do...

You can use the API to do it 5x faster (limited to 5 active requests). When you use that though the server does stop pining for 30+ seconds.

If you need to do lots of IPs at once you could get a script coded to use the API

Im wonder if ovh is planning in near future to do something regarding virtual mac which we need to create it manually, and to prevent ping timeout to the whole server during creating/deleting virtual mac which is really bad at all...
