Additional IP Addresses not functioning after reboot
A few times after rebooting my VPS, my secondary IP address no longer correctly resolves. Each time, I need to submit a ticket and it takes support a few hours on average to resolve the issue.
Has anyone come across this before? I'm wondering if there's something I can do on the server itself to correct it.
What control panel do you use? if you use plesk you can try this tutorial:
Also, I've submitted your problem to my hosting staff, i hope that they can help you ASAP
Do you have the ticket number from the last time this happened to you? So we can check the history and see why it is occuring again? Thanks!
Here is the latst Case #QUW-990969
It doesn't look like an issue with Plesk as the IP isn't even assigned in Windows anymore. Ping request don't resolve and it doesn't show under ipconfig.

I also recommend re-opening your existing support ticket #QUW-990969.
Thanks Tim. The issue was addressed the other day, as it has the other two occasions. The default Plesk page is correct, as only 1 site has been moved over (I want to get an idea of reliability before moving more sites over). The issue is, that second IP doesn't resolve anywhere after the server is rebooted.
