Not able to create account using dedicated IP

While creating an account using “Create a new account” in WHM, if you receive the following error message:

Account Creation Status: failed Your system has run out of available ip addresses, or you do not have permission to use any more ip addresses. (Unable to find an ip address.)

Then check if there is any file named root in the folder /var/cpanel/dips. The files in the folder /var/cpanel/dips contain the IPs delegated to each reseller. So if a file is for root, then while creating the new accounts with dedicated IP, it can use only the IPs specified in the file /var/cpanel/dips/root.

In order to fix the issue, you can just move the file to any other location or delete the file so that the newly added IPs can be assigned to new domains by root.

mv /var/cpanel/dips/root /root


rm -f /var/cpanel/dips/root
