Once you have a running production deployment, you might run into a scenario where you need to replace one of your load balancers because it's corrupted, outdated, or failed.
There are several places inside the Dashboard where you can easily transfer an Elastic IP to another running instance.
Verify that the instance that you are transferring the EIP to is stable and ready to receive incoming traffic.
If your instance is running, you can associate an EIP at the Deployment level. Go to your Deployment's home page (Manage -> Deployments -> DeploymentName). Click on the Servers tab. If the "Public IP" column is not displayed, you will need to make it visible by using the "Show/Hide Columns" option. To change an instance's EIP, click the Edit icon and select an EIP from the list and click the OK icon.
If your instance is running, you can associate an EIP at the "Current" Server level. Under the Info tab, select an EIP for the "Current Elastic IP" parameter.
