Getting validation error while applying:

Interface IPv4 5 on Device Device 1 has invalid Network Stack. Please see log for details
 

Environment

 
  • Spirent TestCenter
  • IP addressing
  • Classfull network

Explanation/Resolution


Spirent TestCenter does not support set a Device IP address with either Class E (multicast) nor Class D addressing, since class D is reserved for multicast and cannot be used for regular unicast traffic and class E is reserved for research and development
