    I am having an issue in that I can't change an IP address.

    Changing ip for 123.tld (divotlbx) to 1.2.3.144
    Setting up for ip change..... Done [MY COMMENT: NOT DONE]
    Sorry, 1.2.3.144 is in use by another domain name and is not a shared ip.
    Yet 1.2.3.144 is a shared IP:

    1.2.3.144 Main/shared IP for: ccexXXXX, daveXXXX, divtXXXX, dootXXXX, drytXXXX, and hathXXXX

    Under the Show/Edit Reserved IP's, it does not show 'any' IP as being reserved and all are shared.

    I did a reinstall of WHM 60.0 (build 28) but that didn't help. I had to get HostGator personnel to manually change the IP address.

    Anyone know why this functionality is no longer working?

    Hello,

    Could you verify if the IP address is configured as a shared IP address for a reseller? You can check via "WHM Home >> Resellers >> Manage Reseller's Shared IP":

    Manage Reseller's Shared IP - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Thanks!

    There are no resellers on the server at all. Everything is assigned to 'root'.

    Hello,

    Could you view the /etc/domainips file and verify if any domain names are listed as associated with the affected IP address? EX:

    Code:
    cat  /etc/domainips 
    Thank you.

    Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.
