Yes it is not possible to move the main IP of a Dedicated Server.

Thanks for responds

I asked for the main IP & I don't have a fail over IP

Well its a waste but we will keep going on the new IP

That's right. Also note that you will not be able to move it back to SYS.

If you want to move the main IP, you can't. But you can use rinetd to temporarily redirect services to your new server until DNS cache expires and your clients reconnect.

Is it the main IP or the Failover IPs you want to move? You can transfer Failover IPs (using the method Dani outlined) but you cannot transfer main IPs.

You can move IP from SYS to OVH.

This can be found at:

Manager >> IP >> Move the failover IP

I have a question we already have a SoYouSstart server & we want to make it for the Dedicated server on OVH

The IP is very popular to all the clients ( over 6 months)

Is it possible to assign that ip from my SYS server to OVH server ?

because I will cancel that SYS server in the next 15 days
