This problem comes in 8.1-R. I have seen it before and thought I filed a report but cannot find it.
I found one (bin/21292) for ifconfig, but it was for two NICs with a same IP. Now is a reversed case
One NIC has two IPs.
Here is the description:
Due to DHCP server down, I manually configured rl0 to 192.168.0.10 for temporarily use.
In the middle of working, DHCP came back and assigned another IP on the rl0, now NIC is down
due to two conflict IP addresses.
rl0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
inet 192.168.0.10 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.0.255
inet 10.10.50.126 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 10.10.50.255
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
plip0: flags=8810<POINTOPOINT,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
I tried unplumb/delete rl0, but if does not work.
Before the bug can be fixed, is any way to fix the IP without rebooting the machine?
