[Openstack] [Swift] IP address of Swift nodes : need help

If the IP for a storage node changes, you'll need to update the rings where that server's drives are. You can update the IP with the `swift-ring-builder set_info ...` command and then use "write_ring" to serialize it. Doing this will not cause any data movement in the cluster. Removing the server and re-adding it to the ring will cause data movement.

So, no, it's not strictly necessary to use static IPs. You'll be saving yourself some management overhead if you do, though.

Curious to know, what will happen if IP address of a give node change that node is made part of Swift cluster. For e.g. let us assume that Swift object node got IP and later it changes to because of DHCP. Will running Swift cluster get affected?
