Dell PowerConnect 3348 Switch Static IP Problem

I have a number of Dell PowerConnect 3348 switches that I am trying to configure with static IPs for management purposes. I have found the VLan IP address and when I try to change it, I get a message that the IP I try and add duplicates an IP interface on the same subnet. I know for a fact that the IP address is unique. I have found a lot of documentation on the hardware and it just mentions that a VLan can only have 1 IP address and that anytime you try and add an IP address is just over writes the old address. Well that is what I want to do, but it is not letting me. The switch is getting the IP address from a BOOTP configuration when it is turned on.  Any help?
ip address A.B.C.D. A.B.C.D {subnet} duplicated ip interface on the same subnet

Make sure you are in the vlan interface when you configure the ip address.  You need to remove the old ip address using "no ip address a.b.c.d subnet mask"

then add the new IP  

also, don't forget on some dells, when you remove the ip address, the default gateway will be removed as well.  So you will need to add the default gateway on the global config, not the interface.

Example:
iinterface vlan 254
ip address 10.10.254.47 255.255.255.0
exit
ip default-gateway 10.10.254.1
