Problem adding additional IP

Try adding the new IP with mask, instead of the mask you are currently assigning to it. Only for the additional IP; the main IP must preserve it's current configuration.

Change the 3rd octet?

(It's been a while since I've down subnets)

today I ordered a fail over IP to my old VPS which has been running for 1 year but the new IP I got from OVH has different block
Original IP: 37.187.xx.106
New IP: 37.187.xxx.161
xx and xxx are difference numbers

Current configuration which doesn't work, I can't ping the new IP

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 37.187.xx.106

auto eth0:1
iface eth0:1 inet static
address 37.187.xxx.161
