As Provider I want to know if an IP address configured on some hosting server in POA-managed infrastructure was configured by POA and is needed for hosting services.


  1. Log into POA Provider Control Panel

  2. Go to Infrastructure Director > Network Manager > IP Manager > IP Addresses

  3. If the IP address in question is present in the list of IP addresses it definitely means that it was assigned by POA to a host and the IP address is needed for hosting services.

You may also perform additional check described below.

Find the host where the IP address is configured in POA Control Panel, depending on the host type it may be found at the following path:

  • Physical server: Deployment Director > Server Manager > Hardware Nodes
  • Virtual server: Service Director > Virtuozzo Manager > VPSs

Check what services (applications) are installed on the host at the 'Applications' tab in the host properties.

In case the host is used as web hosting server (Apache or IIS), log into that node and check if the IP address is really configured in web server:

  • Apache - run the following command on the shared host, replace <IP> with the IP address in question:

    # httpd -S -f /usr/local/pem/etc/apache/httpd.conf_pem 2>&1 | grep <IP>

If you see the IP address in the output it means some Apache virtual hosts use the it.

  • IIS - use the IIS Manager to check if the IP address is assigned to a web site (the 'Binding' field in the list of sites).
