    ifconfig:ioctl (SIOCAIFADDR) file exists error encountered.

      Hi there,

       

      i have a pair of firewalls running peer to peer HA.

       

      When i try to modify the ip address of 1 of the interfaces to a certain ip address , it gives me a "ifconfig:ioctl (SIOCAIFADDR) file exists" error when i try to save the changes.

       

      i tried changing the interface, creating a new interface with the new ip but it still wouldnt save.

       

      i tried changing that interface with another ip and it was able to work!

       

      can someone advise what is the problem and how to go about solving it?
