In version 6.0.0, stricter checks have been added to manage IPs with ports used by all VS/mgmt service etc. If any conflicts are detected, an error message will be displayed: "The specified IP address and port are used by others."
When first upgrading from 5.x to 6.0, if there are any IP/port conflicts in the old configuration, you will see the following warning message in both the GUI and CLI shell: "Configure objects representing ip:port pairs are conflicted with pairs in other configure objects". The conflict ip+port service might not working.
There are two options for addressing these conflicts:
- Fix the conflicts. Find the conflicts and correct them by using different ip:port pairs.
- Keep using the configuration with these conflicts.
All detected conflict objects are logged in "address_book_conflicts.log". In the GUI, go to System > Debug. After generating and downloading the debug file, you can find the file in the directory named "CMDB".
After you have fixed the conflicts, you can verify by rebooting the system and checking whether the system still displays the error or warning message.
You can remove the warning by entering the following in CLI:
config system global
set addrbook disable
Note: the conflicting ip:port pairs can make some service ports unavailable.
