Re: upgrade bosh director but got error message "IP in use"

Make sure to follow directions from: You should see bosh-init
find bosh-deployments.yml file and migrate it. If migration has succeeded
bosh-deployments.yml would have been removed. If it was not removed that
means you just installed a separate Director VM.

Hi all,

i was trying to use bosh-init to upgrade my current running bosh director
to a newer stemcell, at the very last step when it's creating the VM, it
threw error and said: "...fixed ip address is already in

this is weird because i believe bosh-init should recreate the VM, migrate
the current content to the new VM and delete the old VM. why it's
complaining the old VM is using the fixed IP?

should i actually remove the existing bosh director VM first at the IaaS
layer (i am using openstack), then run bosh-init?
