A more descriptive error for IP Conflict?

During some QA testing today, I accidentally setup two NethServer instances with the same IP on the same network and received an error that didn’t make much sense:

Task completed with errors
S70network-start #8 (exit status 256)

Would it be possible to add a check for duplicate IPs and a more descriptive error?

The check it’s already implemented when the network is restarted (this is why the even failed), but you can view it only from the command line.
I think we could add such a feature in the web interface but I have no idea how it’s difficult.

I think systemd will provide the ground for this kind of improvement :thumbsup:
