%Inconsistent address and mask

All,

     I am in the process of expanding a subnet from a /24 to a /23 10.12.155.0 255.255.255.0 to 10.12.155.0 255.255.254.0 and I keep getting a %Inconsistent address and mask error when I do an IP Route (ip route 10.12.155.0 255.255.254.0 10.128.0.3).  I have expanded multiple subnets in the past for example 10.12.142.0 /24 to a /23 so I am not seeing why this is not working properly.  Thanks for any help that you can provide.

Re: %Inconsistent address and mask

David,

Your boundary starts at 154 for that mask, so you'll need to add the route as "ip route 10.12.154.0 255.255.254.0 10.128.0.3".

If you want just the 155 subnet, you can add it as a class c with "ip route 10.12.155.0 255.255.255.0 10.128.0.3" and that would work as well.

In your past example, your boundary would start at 142, so that's why you didn't have an issue then...
