can't add IP to VPS from IP pool, with IP's already assigned to another VPS


I just picked up something strange.

When VPS1 has an IP, which is part of, then I can't assign any IP's from that range to another VPS once CloudMin reach's itself.

For example, VPS2 has been assigned IP's & Since has already been assigned to VPS1, VPS2 should now get But it doesn't, instead I get the following error:

Failed to save network interface : SIOCGIFADDR: Cannot assign requested address SIOCSIFBROADCAST: Cannot assign requested address SIOCSIFBRDADDR: Cannot assign requested address SIOCSIFFLAGS: Cannot assign requested address



What IP does Cloudmin assign to VPS2 in this case?

Even though it fails to activate the IP (which may be due to it being on a different subnet?) , you should still see the new IP on the Network Interfaces page.

It doesn't assign an IP, that's the point.

The 1st 2 IP's were assigned successfully, but then I can't assign any more IP's. All IP's are on the same subnet

That error message doesn't indicate a failure to assign an IP though - rather, it means that the IP couldn't be activated on the VPS.

If you do this on a VPS that is shut down, does the same thing happen?
