Static IP - In case NooBaa core is using a static IP, the easiest solution is to change this IP to another IP.
DHCP - In case NooBaa core is configured with DHCP, you can go the first install wizard and re-apply the DHCP settings. if the problem persists you will need to find the second device which holds this IP.
Finding the second device
If using static or if re-applying DHCP didn't help. You can try to find the second server by one of the following:
- In order to get all the MAC addresses which are connected to this IP, you can run arp -a command from a LINUX machine.
- You can try to get information about the second server by running the command nbtstat -a <IP> from a WINDOWS machine.
- If the IP is associated to a DNS name, you can use the nslookup command from a LINUX server.
- You can try to find the hostname associated to this IP by running the host command from a Linux server.
- You can install the nbtscan package on a Linux server and run it.
