When configuring a new VLAN on my 2910-48, I receive the message "IP Address (or subnet) 192.168.10.2/24 already exists". I've pinged the IP and received no return. This 48-port switch replaced a 24-port switch. I cannot find a reference to this IP address in any of my documentation.
How do I remove this IP address so I can reuse it? Does the "/24" at the end of the IP address refer to something on the old switch?

In order for us to help you, please post the entire configuration file of the switch.
You have to login via console to the switch, acces the CLI (if the menu appears, use option 5) and issue the following command:
Switch# show config
As for the /24 part of the ip address it represents the netmask. /24 stands for 255.255.255.0
192.168.10.2 / 24 is the same thing as 192.168.10.2 / 255.255.255.0
24 bits are used to create the netmask and you get a type C IP address.
