- After upgrading memory to 12 GB (on 12600 appliance), the customer noticed that they were unable to reach the gateway. They found that the Mgmt interface had changed and etc/hosts had the wrong IP. After changing IP back to the original IP and rebooting, they were able to reach the gateway via the Mgmt interface. However, the Mgmt interface IP on the LCD shows "Wrong IP Please try again".
- /var/log/messages shows "frontstage: Error: Management interface must have an IP address"
