Wlsifconfig.sh On FMW 12c On Linux 7.1 Kernel 3.10 Overwrites Network VIP[RDAY]

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On Linux 7.1 kernel 3.10, the calling of the wlsifconfig.sh script by the node manager (when Automatic Server Migration Enabled) does NOT create a new VIP address as the next free eth0:? but actually overwrites the eth0:1.

In this case eth0:1 is the VIP Address of the Admin Server. This then causes the Admin Server to become unavailable.

This works fine on Linux 6.3 Kernel 2.6.
