service_password - service account password

state – parameter reserved for future use

storage_server_type - true if this is a storage server

strict_virtual_machine_id — the ID of a virtual server that will never reside on the same hypervisor with this VS

suspended — true if VS is suspended, otherwise false

template_id — the ID of the template the VS is based on

id - the ID of the IP address

ip_address_pool_id - ID of the IP address pool the IP address is associated with

network_address - the address of the network

network_id - the ID of the network

pxe - true, if this address can be used for cloudbooting a hypervisor

updated_at - the date in the [YYYY][MM][DD]T[hh][mm][ss]Z format

user_id - the ID of the user this IP address is assigned to

free - true if free, otherwise false
