Thanks for joining the community.
We have received your inquiry and will proceed to investigate further since it is not usual for the IP address to remain causing conflicts. What could be happening is the DHCP servers sometimes assign addresses based on MAC address and this could be the reason why it tries to assign the same IP address to the same equipment even when the equipment is OOB.
We will research on this and will get back to you as soon as we have updates.
