Description (partial)

Symptom:
This is a documentation bug.

Request is to update the note under the "Multiple IPv4 Address" section of "configuring IPv4" document:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/sw/6_x/nx-os/unicast/configuration/guide/l3_ip.html#wp1180671

Presently following note sounds every device in the segment requires secondary IP address assignment which does not serve the purpose of secondary IP address.

"NoteIf any device on a network segment uses a secondary IPv4 address, all other devices on that same network interface must also use a secondary address from the same network or subnet. The inconsistent use of secondary addresses on a network segment can quickly cause routing loops."
