Issue Description:

What does the "Inconsistent value" log message mean?

Solution:

A ProCurve Switch logs an "Inconsistent value" message when a user attempts to add an IP address that is in the same subnet as a previously-configured IP interface.

An "Inconsistent value" message may also be logged when attempting to configure a static route that uses an IP address instead of a Network address:

ip route 1.1.1.1/29

2.2.2.2 1.1.1.1/29: Inconsistent address and mask.

For this example, the IP address "1.1.1.1" is a host within the 1.1.1.0/29 subnet. Instead, use the Network address for the static route:

ip route 1.1.1.0/29 2.2.2.2

In addition, avoid using a Network address as a VLAN's IP interface. For example, attempting to use an IP address of 1.1.1.0/29 within VLAN 123 will result in an Inconsistent value error, because an IP address needs to be contained within the Host Range of the network, and not consist of a Network address or subnet Broadcast address. ;
