If serverA has IP Address 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
