ElasticBeanstalk: Creating EIP failed


The full error: "ElasticBeanstalk: Creating EIP failed Reason: Resource handler returned message: "The maximum number of addresses has been reached."

I am getting this error despite having room for five more EIP addresses, according to the Service Quotas page for Elastic IPs.

How can I get this resolved? Has anyone else run into this problem?

According to https://repost.aws/knowledge-center/ec2-troubleshoot-elastic-ip-addresses

When allocating a new Elastic IP address, I'm receiving the error "Elastic IP address could not be allocated. The maximum number of addresses has been reached"

All AWS accounts are limited to five Elastic IP addresses per Region. If you receive the error The maximum number of addresses has been reached, verify how many Elastic IP address you're using and what the limit is for your account.

When you are looking at the Service Quotas console https://console.aws.amazon.com/servicequotas/ ensure that you are viewing the same region as the one into which you're trying to deploy your beanstalk.

  • Thanks, I was looking in the wrong region for my Service Quotas. I was able to request more for the correct region and get this working.
