I have a server that had static IP configured, what happened is that the Network Card got faulty and had to be replaced. so I bought a new network card and replaced the faulty one, now when I try and configure the IP address on the new card I get an error message saying that the IP address has been assigned to another network card. I then installed the faulty network card again and configured it to obtain its IP address from DHCP and then rebooted the server but it still gives me the same error message whenever I try to enter the static IP on the new Network Card.
