Had some problems connecting to sea-vm-linux64-1 from the sea-master1 on
scl3.  Since it's part of a SCL3 ESX Cluster, I have no idea which vm it
is.  Ashish rebooted the vm for us, but now we encountered a "some other 
host already uses that IP address" error.

Can someone have a look at it and get the ip straightened out?

Thanks

I don't see *any* host at that IP right now, so I can't do much to figure out which is squatting there:

? (63.245.223.96) at <incomplete> on eth0

I think I need some more data - where did that error occur?  If it can't assign an IP, how'd you get into the host to see the error?

I had consoled in via vcentre and saw the message during bootup.
This had
 NAME=eth0
instead of
 DEVICE=eth0
in the ifcfg-eth0 script.  So it passed an empty string to a bunch of commands, they failed, and it made incorrect assumptions.  Fixed now.
