Automator Fails after Instance Reboot (when using Azure App Gateway), how can we fix it?

After an unexpected reboot of the container instance in Azure the container can sometimes come back up with a new IP address (e.g. x.x.0.5 even when the App Gateway had originally been provisioned with an IP of x.x.0.4 in the backend pool). Updating the IP of the container in the backend pool resolves this issue.

  • In the Azure cloud shell, retrieve the current IP:

az container show --name keeperautomatorcontainer --resource-group keeper_automator_rg --query ipAddress.ip --output tsv

  • In Azure portal select Resource groups > $your_resource_group > your Application Gateway > Backend pools > change Target IP to the new one from above.
