Re: cmmodnet can't removed IP

The IP might be active on another host.

Ping the IP address again, then run "arp -a" immediately after stopping the ping to see which MAC address is associated with the IP. Does it match any of the MAC addresses of this host? If not, find the host that has that particular MAC address and examine its configuration.

Here is outcome then lanscan. Can you assist how to identify which MAC matched sapnfsegp1 ?

Re: cmmodnet can't removed IP

Lanscan? Oh, you mean it's HP-UX, not Linux. I see. (You posted to Linux system administration section, so I generally assumed you had some form of Linux. I'll ask the moderators to move this thread to the proper HP-UX system administration section.)

The current MAC address of IP is 0:b:fc:fe:1b:c = 00:0b:fc:fe:1b:0c = 0x000BFCFE1B0C (alternate ways to write the MAC address).

There is no such address listed by lanscan. That means the IP address is most likely currently active on some other host.

According to this search service, the MAC address prefix 00:0b:fc suggests the IP address is currently accessible via (or perhaps even held by) some Cisco device:

Contact your network administrator: s/he might be able to identify the switch port where that MAC address is located. If the MAC address points you to e.g. a firewall or a router, the network administrator should know how to continue the trace using the IP address.

You may have a classic case of duplicate IP address. If your Serviceguard package was generating/receiving a lot of traffic and the other holder of the same IP was mostly quiet, the duplicate IP might not have caused any significant problems and thus managed to stay undetected... until now.

Thank you for quick direction. Hope network administrator can trace it.
