I am an intermediate, not professional network admin for my own small business. I am attempting to add a new tunnel interface for a new VPN branch. I'm using the same config I have implements many times before - this will be my 4th branch. However I'm running into this error message I can't resolve myself. Here is the text from the commit error...

"In virtual-router default: address 192.168.100.1/24 on interface vlan.2 is duplicate with address 192.168.100.10/24 on interface ethernet1/1.(Module: routed) Commit failed"

Which seems to have nothing to do with the new tunnel I am adding, which will be a network on 192.168.150.0/24. Ethernet 1/1 is my wan connection, which is gets a dhcp ip address from my isp, and has no interface ip address specified. My vlan serves addresses on network 192.168.100.0/24.

In my own troubleshooting, it seems that if I make any change at all to my virtual router config, commits will fail with this error.

I'm lost, I've searched my config and cannot find what it is referring too. Any ideas what's up?

I really appreciate the assistance!

    Your subnets 192.168.100.1/24 and 192.168.100.10/24 are overlapping. That's why you can't commit. – user36472 Jun 1 '17 at 5:50
  • Thank you for your reply. I have checked over everything and I can not find a 192.168.100.10/24 subnet defined anywhere. It's like... it's a glitch :| I even exported the config and searched the entire thing for that ip address, and the only reference is a static ip assignment in my virtual router. Not as a subnet, just the ip. I don't understand what it's referencing. – Dustin DuFault Jun 1 '17 at 6:17
  • As i undertand Ethernet1/1 is DHCP? If your ISP delivers the address 192.168.100.10/24 on Ethernet1/1 via DHCP it will be overlapping. – user36472 Jun 1 '17 at 13:40
  • Thanks again, Crown! The ISP is Comcast and the address they are issuing is in a different subnet.... I'm not sure where it's getting the idea that 192.168.100.x is related to Ethernet1/1 at all haha – Dustin DuFault Jun 1 '17 at 13:46
  • Can you log into the command line and post the output from the command "show interfaces all" – John K. Jun 1 '17 at 15:12

Wanted to update with how I resolved this. Basically something apparently got corrupted in the config files. The behavior started when I was trying to add a new tunnel interface, but initially would disappear when I reverted to one of my saved configs. After a while even this action would not resolve the error (same one noted above). So - I reverted to factory! Needless to say that is less than ideal, I'm very surprised to have this type of issue with this box. Once I did so I was able to import my saved configuration file and add the tunnel interface with no errors.
