NDB Quick Tip VI – DB Server VMs with same IP Address

Can NDB manage DB Server VMs with same IP address ?

The above question has come up a few times over the past few months when discussing DBaaS with potential customers. The short answer is NO, each DB Server VM needs to have a separate IP address and to date it has never been a blocker (to my knowledge) for NDB adoption.

This is documented in NDB User Guide, section NDB Limitations and Notes
