    Environment
    Management Console

    Cause
    Windows utilities can accept IP addresses comprised of decimal, octal, or hexadecimal numbers. This will cause issues if you unintentionally use a leading zero in a decimal octet. With a leading zero, the number is typically resolved by these utilities as an octal number, specifying the incorrect IP address.

    Resolution
    When configuring IP addresses in Management Console, decimal format is desired.

    The different IP address formats can be found below:
    10.172.58.101 (decimal)
    012.0254.072.0145 (octal)
    0xA.0xAC.0x3A.0x65 (hexadecimal)

    For example:
    A device may have the IP address of 10.172.58.101 in decimal. However, the user configures the IP address to be 10.172.058.101 or 010.172.058.101 in Management Console. This would in turn specify the respective IP octets in octal which is not the desired result. Therefore, the user will need to delete the leading zeros for Management Console to connect properly.
