How to fix GlobalProtect error message "Assign Private IP address failed"
When a remote user connects to the corporate network with GlobalProtect, the computer will be assigned an IP address from the pool configured on the gateway. It is possible that this IP address overlaps the subnet that the workstation is already in, which will cause issues.
For example: A remote employee is connecting from a hotel room where the IP address received locally was in the 10.0.0.0/8 range. The IP pool available for GlobalProtect clients is 10.1.1.0/24. This will cause issues since the IP pool is part of the local subnet.
In this case, the following error is generated in System logs on the firewall: "Assign Private IP address failed".
- Global Protect
The recommended solution for this issue is to create a new IP pool in a different subnet and leave that new pool lower on the list. IP pools are used from the top down, but if the client is in a subnet that conflicts with the first IP pool, the firewall will assign an IP address from the second pool automatically.

How do I assign a custom primary private IP address to my Amazon EC2 instance?
I want to assign a custom primary private IP address to my Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance.
You can associate a custom private IP address to your Amazon EC2 instance while you configure the instance before you launch it. However, the IP address must meet these conditions:
- Have a valid IPv4 range.
- Be within the CIDR range of the chosen subnet.
- Be available. The private IP address must not be tied to any other resource.
Note: It's not possible to assign a new custom primary private IP address to an existing instance.
- Configure an Amazon EC2 instance. For detailed steps, see Launch an instance using the old launch instance wizard or Launch an instance using the new launch instance wizard .
- In the Configure Instance Details section, for Network , select a virtual private cloud (VPC), or create a new VPC. For Subnet , select the subnet, or create a new subnet where you want to launch your instance.
- In the Network interfaces section, for Primary IP (the primary private IPv4 address of the network interface), enter the custom private IPv4 address.
- Complete the launch instance wizard configurations, and then launch the instance.

Elastic Compute Service:Assign secondary private IP addresses
You can assign one or more secondary private IP addresses to a primary or secondary elastic network interface (ENI). This topic describes how to assign secondary private IP addresses and configure secondary private IP addresses in an Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance.
Secondary private IP addresses are suitable for the following scenarios:
Scenarios that involve multiple applications: If your instance hosts multiple applications, you can assign secondary private IP addresses to the applications so that each application can use a separate IP address for outbound connections. This way, a single instance can provide multiple services to maximize instance utilization.
Failover scenarios: If an instance fails, you can unbind ENIs from the instance and bind the ENIs to another instance so that traffic destined for the secondary private IP addresses of the failed instance is diverted to the normal instance. This ensures service continuity.
You can configure event notifications in EventBridge or CloudMonitor to specify how you receive notifications for private IP address assignment events. You can select by email and DingTalk chatbots. You can obtain information, such as the IDs of ENIs and the secondary private IP addresses that are assigned to the ENIs, from the notifications and configure operations to be automatically performed in response to the notifications. For more information, see Configure event notifications , ECS events , and the " Notifications for private IPv4 address assignment events " section of the IP address event notifications topic.
When you assign secondary private IP addresses, take note of the following limits:
Limits on security groups: A limited number of private IP addresses can be contained in a security group of the Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) type. For more information, see the "Security group limits" section of the Limits topic.
Limits on ENIs: The maximum number of private IP addresses that can be assigned to an ENI varies based on the status of the ENI.
For an ENI in the Available state, up to 10 private IP addresses can be assigned.
For an ENI in the Bound state, the maximum number of private IP addresses that can be assigned is subject to the instance type of the associated instance. For more information, see Instance families .
Step 1: Make preparations
Make sure that the following requirements are met:
The instance to which an ENI is bound is in the Running (Running) state. For more information, see Start an instance .
A secondary ENI is bound to the instance. For more information, see Bind an ENI .
Step 2: Assign secondary private IP addresses
- Log on to the ECS console .
- In the left-side navigation pane, choose Network & Security > ENIs .
- In the top navigation bar, select a region.
On the Network Interfaces page, find the ENI to which you want to assign secondary private IP addresses and click Manage Secondary Private IP Address in the Actions column.
In the Manage Secondary Private IP Address dialog box, click Assign New IP in the IPv4 Addresses or IPv6 Address section to assign IP addresses based on your business needs.
If you leave the fields empty, IP addresses are automatically assigned at random from within the private CIDR blocks in the IPv4 Private CIDR Block and IPv6 Private CIDR Block values of the ENI.
If you enter IP addresses, make sure that the IP addresses are within the private CIDR blocks in the IPv4 Private CIDR Block and IPv6 Private CIDR Block values of the ENI.
Step 3: Configure secondary private IP addresses in an instance
This section describes how to configure secondary private IPv4 addresses. Operations vary based on the operating system type and the IP address type.
For more information about how to configure secondary private IPv6 addresses, see Step 4: Configure an IPv6 address for Windows instances and Step 4: Configure an IPv6 address for Linux instances.
- Connect to an ECS instance. For more information about connection methods, see Connection methods .
View the subnet mask and default gateway of the instance.
Open Command Prompt or Windows PowerShell.
Run the ipconfig command to view the subnet mask and default gateway of the instance.
Open Network and Sharing Center .
Click Change adapter settings .
Double-click the network connection in use. In this example, the network connection named Ethernet is used. Click Properties in the Ethernet Status dialog box.
In the Ethernet Properties dialog box, double-click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) .
In the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Properties dialog box, select Use the following IP address and click Advanced...
In the Advanced TCP/IP Settings dialog box, configure IP addresses.
In the IP addresses section, click Add... and enter one of the assigned IP addresses in the IP address field and the obtained subnet mask in the Subnet mask field.
You can repeat this operation to add multiple IP addresses to the same adapter.
In the Default gateways section, click Add... and enter the obtained default gateway in the Default gateway field.
Run the ipconfig command to check the configuration result.
If a Windows instance cannot access the Internet after you configure secondary private IP addresses for the instance, troubleshoot the problem by following the instructions in the After I configure a secondary private IP address for a Windows instance, the instance cannot connect to the Internet. Why? section of the Network FAQ topic.
Linux instances that run an RHEL operating system
Before you perform the following procedure, take note of the following items:
This procedure applies to the following operating systems: Alibaba Cloud Linux 2, Alibaba Cloud Linux 3, CentOS 6, CentOS 7, CentOS 8, Red Hat 6, Red Hat 7, Red Hat 8, Anolis 7, Anolis 8, Fedora 33, and Fedora 34.
In the following example, the eth0 primary ENI is used. If you are working with a secondary ENI, modify the ENI ID.
Run the ifconfig command to query the subnet mask and run the route -n command to query the default gateway.
In the preceding command output, 255.255.**.** corresponding to netmask is the IPv4 subnet mask, and 192.**.**.253 corresponding to Gateway is the default gateway.
If the Linux distribution used by the instance does not support the ifconfig command, run the ip a or ip addr show command instead.
Modify the network configuration file.
To configure a single private IPv4 address, run the vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:0 command to add the corresponding configuration items.
To configure multiple private IPv4 addresses, increment the sequence number in the DEVICE value and continue to add configuration items.
For example, run the vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:1 command to add the following configuration items:
Run the corresponding command based on the operating system for the configuration to take effect.
Run the ifconfig command to check the configuration result.
