[New: openFATE 313457] IP address management options for duplicate IP
Feature added by: John Harmon (joharmon)

Feature #313457, revision 1
Title: IP address management options for duplicate IP

Buildservice: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: John Harmon (joharmon)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
If serverA has IP Address 192.168.1.1 and is powered down, and serverB is
configured with the same IP address, then when both serverA and B are running
there can be issues. While, admittedly, this is an Administrative issue, the
customer would like to see a way to do one of the following: 1. If, when the
network is coming up, the ip address is bound already on another box, prevent
this server from loading/binding the configured IP address (although I can see
this as a security issue). 2. Bind a default address 3. Get a DHCP address and
once the system is up email the admin with the problem
