The Control Center will not save ethernet configuration if static route added on Ethernet tab is invalid. In cases of an upgrade from pre-10.0 to 10.0 or later, the resulting error is unexpected.

New ethernet settings found to be invalid and cannot be saved for specified host. Old settings are retained.


While the Control Center will not save the ethernet configuration with an invalid static route, versions prior to 10.0 did not detect this error state.


Investigate the configured static routes to determine and remove which item is not valid.

Information on editing the Ethernet configuration can be found in KB HOWTO15599 (
