    unfortunately it does not. As I stated in the description (maybe I didnt emphasize enough),
    we do need that feature on the HMC-UI. We are aware of the functions on the CLI.

    Does the option in CLI specified in the previous comment solve your requirement?

    As part of the LPM validation/operation you can specify the MSP IP address to be used (via the CLI). If you specify the network as part of the validation command, then HMC will use the specified IP address. Please see the below link for the command details.
