Multiple IP Raspian

I have several Pis, all are getting the same IP - how can we sign-out - sign in with unique ips / authentification ?

Thanks for the help,

Hi Carsten — I followed up with you via email, but I’ll copy the reply here so others can benefit too.

This is a known issue. Tailscale keeps small amounts of state on the local filesystem so if those files get duplicated (e.g. when restoring from a backup or duplicate a Raspberry Pi image) the new device will have the same IP as the old one.

You can fix this by removing Tailscale’s state file and restarting Tailscale. Here are instructions for different device types:

  • Linux: run sudo systemctl stop tailscaled, remove /var/lib/tailscale/tailscaled.state, and then re-run sudo tailscale up
  • Windows: remove the C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Tailscale and C:\Windows\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Tailscale folders
  • macOS: open “Keychain Access” and remove the tailscale-preferences key

This is documented in our uninstall docs.

Cool, that helped !

Very happy with your service so far !
