X6-4 problems setting IP

I am having issues changing the IPs from DHCP to static on my two X6-4 directors. Not sure why.


No matter what I set on as IP and netmask I get this error:


Address change failed: IP address has invalid network number (9)


Has anyone had this issue before?


Both CPs are connected to the same VLAN, no firewall, no VLAN tagging and so on.

This fixed the issue. Also fixed the fw upgrade issue I had.
