The purpose of the override keyword is to prevent a user from accidentally setting many cards to the same IP settings, thus causing IP conflicts on the network. The override keyword is located in the NetworkTCP/IP section, for example:

[SmartUPS/Matrix]) and it will look similar to this at the top of the specific section with UPS values and UPSOverride:
