I want to know what we should do for akamai configuration if our origin host ip has been changed. How can we verify if the new ip has be mapped by akamai.
You can go to Luna --> Configure --> configuration(qap2) --> default behavior --> origin hostname
I'm not sure if I understand your question. What do you mean by "mapped by Akamai"?
There is no action required on your end after changing Origin IP address. After the TTL in DNS expires Akamai will perform another DNS request to obtain the new IP address and will start directing traffic there without any downtime.
If you could clarify a bit further what information exactly you require then I should be able to answer your question more accurately.
Thanks for your quick reply, Damian. You mean that we don’t need to do anything on the Akamai corresponding configuration? But how can I make sure that our new origin server ip has been used by Akamai? It may have a place on LUNA to look at origin server’s ip, right?
It depends. Do you have your Origin configured using DNS hostname or a static IP address?
If you are using a DNS name as your Origin - then no action is required and no changes on Akamai configuration need to be made. You simply change the DNS record for your Origin hostname and Akamai will automatically resolve the new DNS data.
However if you configured your Origin using a static IP address - then you will need to change Akamai configuration to reflect the IP change. Please remember to make the change only when both new and old IP addresses are active and ready to serve traffic - otherwise if one of machines is not active - your website may experience some downtime during the migration.
We use domain name on our configurations. We change for origin server ip on DNS server too. But Ujjwal Jain from Akamai had showed us how to verify if the orgin server ip for LUNA yesterday. But I forgot how to get that page. This is why I post my question because we have production change soon. I want to verify to make sure that day.

Thank you Ujjwal.
But from qap2 configuration, I only saw "Default behaviors are applied to all requests for the property hostname(s).", and it is not click-able. origin server hostname is not click-able either.
Please do a nslookup for the origin hostname to know the DNS IP:
Thanks and regards,
That way is testing our dns server entry. I want to see from Akamai like you. But it seems that I have no privilege to do it.
The Origin server hostname field in PM is not clickable. You can copy the domain name and resolve the hostname (ping or dig or nslookup) to check which IP the origin hostname is currently resolving to.
Thank you Arthi. That way is testing our dns entry. I want to see from Akamai but it seems that I have no privilege to do it.
You can turn on the logging at your new origin IP.
When you change IP from A to B,
1) You will see that hits on "A" will decrease.
2) Your hits on "B" will increase.
Or to be very accurate,
1) Turn "True-Client IP" on in the Akamai configuration.
2) Turn on logging of True-Client IP in your webserver logs.(Use the KB:https://control.akamai.com/core/search/kb_article.search?articleId=4892)
3) Make a request on non-cacheable object and get the "Date" from the response headers.
4) Check your corresponding request in your logs at your end [You will be able to see that your client IP and the Date header will match the origin logs).
If you want to check the specific DNS entry from any Akamai servers, then you can use the Diagnostic Tools:(Resolve->Diagnostic Tools->Get Domain Information (DIG) )
I hope this answers your queries.
