Archive for the ‘Error, some other host already uses address’ Category


If you receive such message on your virtual machine, you have workaround to fix this problem

To check ip and mac:

[root@demo devices]# arping -c 2 -w 3 -D -I eth9 XX.XX.XX.X

ARPING XX.XX.XX.X from 0.0.0.0 eth9
Unicast reply from XX.XX.XX.X   [00:50:56:xx:xx:xx:xx]  0.697ms
Sent 1 probes (1 broadcast(s))
Received 1 response(s)

In the interface initialization script /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-eth it has the following:

if ! /sbin/arping -q -c 2 -w 3 -D -I ${REALDEVICE} ${ipaddr[$idx]} ; then
net_log $”Error, some other host already uses address ${ipaddr[$idx]}.”
exit 1
fi

Just comment it out above in and restart network service. It is working fine 🙂 🙂 🙂
