Using Virtualmin 3.02, I'm trying to create a virtual server and getting the error: "Failed to create virtual server : The virtual interface IP address is already in use."
It's clear (to me!) that nothing has been assigned to the IP address I've defined.
I took a look at the Module Config page, and got a little confused. I attempted to change "Network interface for virtual addresses" from "eth0" to "Detect automatically." After saving, it displays "Virtualmin's configuration has not been checked since it was last updated. Click the button below to verify it now" so I clicked to "re-check and refesh configuration" and it displays "Using network interface eth0 for virtual IPs." Now the confusing part: Going back to the Module Config page, the "Network interface for virtual addresses" remains set as "eth0", not "Detect automatically" as I thought I requested. Well, anyway I thought, maybe that's just a UI quirk, so I set the "Network interface for virtual addresses" to eth0:12 (which I knew is live but not in use) and set "Base number for virtual interfaces" from automatic to the IP address I want to use. Then I tried creating a virtual server again and I'm still getting the error: "Failed to create virtual server : The virtual interface IP address is already in use."
So what's up? How do I create a virtual server at a specified IP address?
