    Error, some other host already uses address

      hi everyone



      i created new virtual machines (centos6) on vmware esx5  but i have problem in a specific vlan (20).  when i want to start or restart an interface  it shows me "Error, some other host already uses address x.x.x.x".

      i thought it is related to OS version but when i tested another os version (like red hat 5 , centos5) it showed the same error.  however when i change vlan number it will be correct but when i return to vlan20 it has the same problem. i dont know why  but this error only happened in Linux and  when i change a windows vm to vlan20  it will work correctly. thanks in advance
