Error generating IP: Not Found shoud not be in the IP field
The "Error generating IP: Not Found" error is being inserted in the field itself on error (e.g. proxy is not reachable). This is not only nice from the UX standpoint, but when you try to create new host with proxy unavaiable and you don't even open the interface form and submit, the IP is kept set to this string, which causes validation error. We should totally leave IP field empty on errors showing this message as a proper validation error.
Assigning to Shimon who introduced this behavior.

For the record, this is not just a cosmetic thing. It breaks DHCP IP address assignement if you have multiple subnets and you want to suggest an IP address from other subnet that is pre-selected (the first one usually).
