ReleaseAddress operation releases an elastic IP address
associated with your account.
If you run this operation on an elastic IP address that is already released, the address might be assigned to another account which will cause Amazon EC2 to return an error.
Releasing an IP address automatically disassociates it from any instance with which it is associated. For more information, see DisassociateAddress.
After releasing an elastic IP address, it is released to the IP address pool and might no longer be available to your account. Make sure to update your DNS records and any servers or devices that communicate with the address.
