When IPv6 is set to manual and IPv4 is set to automatic (dhcp) address allocation, a static IPv6 address triggers an error in the GUI: "The format for the address at Mgmt Port IPV6 is invalid. To change the format of an existing IP address, edit the field and click Update"


The GUI throws an error if you manually set the IPv6 address.


IPv4 management config is set to automatic (dhcp) while IPv6 is set to manual.
