OVH Vps failover IP

So I wanted to add the failover ip to my ovh vps running ubuntu 16.04 LTS and it didn’t work using the method on ovh’s guide. (http://guides.ovh.net/AjouterAliasIp)
After some googling, I found a guide, in Slovak(https://jan.fecik.sk/blog/ovh-com-vps-failover-ip-vps-s-viac-ip.html ), so I’m going to put the most important steps to add your failover ip.

Note: change the configuration below accordingly
Given situation:
VPS ip: 198.51.100.7

3. Reboot your vps or restart interface

4. Test it

 

Et voila, have fun.
