Release : 20.2.x, 21.2.x

When  set to true it allows modeling gateway device  creation even if the concerned IP is associated with another device . The only exception is that new model device creation fails if the concerned IP address is used as Network_address of another device .

This new functionality will be included in the next Spectrum release (probably 21.2.7).
