Another Interesting Error

I was configuring a routed port on a 3560 when I ran across an interesting error:

sw1(config-if)#no switch
sw1(config-if)#ip add
Bad mask 0xFFE1FF00 for address

I LOVE it when my switch speaks hex to me.  HOT!!!

I’m not sure why it pointed out my fat-fingered mistake via hex rather than decimal, but it’s pretty easy to decode this one.  My mask should have been or FFFFFF00 in hex.
