If you are running AOS 5.10 or later, you may notice some user VM in Prism show two IP addresses. This could happen if the VM releases its older IP address and acquire a new one. You will see both old and new IP addresses in Prism for this VM, even if VM uses a temporary IP address like APIPA addresses (APIPA addresses fall into 169.254.1.0 - 169.254.254.255 range and use 255.255.0.0 netmask)

This is by design and should nto last more than 10 minutes as we scan the arp cache every 10 minutes as we scan the ARP cache every 10 minutes to detect duplicate entries, and remove all entries corresponding to an IP address except for the most recent one.
