Address already in use message on WIB console

An "address already in use" message on the WIB console is not a problem - it is a message that can come out under normal circumstances.

During certain "Update WIB Files" operations some processes on the WIB are restarted. When the new process tries to open the listening port sometimes the old process has not yet exited fully and so you get the message displayed on the WIB console. However, the new process keeps trying so eventually when the old process exits the new process will open up the port itself and stop displaying the message.

The message does NOT indicate an IP conflict in the network.
