    Hey all.
    Just recently got my first dedicated server and I've been growing through it, setting it up ready to transfer all my accounts over from my previous VPS, I hope I'm posting this in the correct forum.:confused: I'm using WHM 11.15.0.

    Anyone, I have 12 IP addresses, but only added about 5 to the system so far (via Add a New IP Address).

    The starting IP is .146, which I cannot seem to 'reserve' as it isn't listed in the "Show/Edit Reserved IPs", whereas I can reserve any other IP.

    In "Basic cPanel/WHM Setup" I have the shared IP set to .148 and both nameservers set to .146 and .147.

    Why can I not reserve x.x.x.146?

    Also, another quick question; to setup the nameservers do I just add (and ns2 obviously) in Basic cPanel/WHM Setup and click Assign IP and Add an A entry for this nameserver for each of them?

    Thanks a lot in advanced!

    If you attempt to re-add the .146 IP Address via the Add IP Address function, does WHM proerply return an error stating the IP Address already exists?
