I have several extra ip's on a machine, which have all been added with what I think is the wrong subnet mask. Even though everything appears to be functioning properly (over 18 months or more); I'm trying to figure out how to adjust these without disrupting services.

I think the way I do this is by adjusting the entries in /etc/ips
and then...
service ipaliases restart

ifconfig shows me all the entries eg
eth0:1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
inet addr:xx.xx.xx.10 Bcast:xx.xx.xx.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
Base address:0xa400 Memory:f2000000-f2020000

The network mask for this machine (from when I first got it) is xx.xx.xx.224

/etc/ips
has entries like
xx.xx.xx.11:255.255.255.0:xx.xx.xx.255
xx.xx.xx.12:255.255.255.0:xx.xx.xx.255

I think I need to adjust this to be
xx.xx.xx.11:255.255.255.224:xx.xx.xx.255
xx.xx.xx.12:255.255.255.224:xx.xx.xx.255

I have xx'd out the actual ips here

I think the 255.255.255.0 (rather than 255.255.255.224) was allocated by default when setting up the ips in whm.

Thanks anyone...
