Description (partial)

While attempting to install a Hyperflex cluster via Intersight the following error is received:
'Configure networking script generated an exception: 169.254.1.X is reachable. Please check for duplicate IP addresses and retry'

This can be caused by multiple different conditions:
1. A second cluster that was deployed from Intersight already exists in that domain
2. A firewall/default gateway is responding to 169.x.x.x requests coming in on port 443
3. A solution from another vendor requires the use of the specific 169 addresses
