sk57100 question

I have a question regarding the "Detailed action plan for removing an interface from cluster topology (R80.10 and above)" listed in sk57100. 

Point 1 F says:

"Remove the Virtual IP address from the pair of the interfaces that should be removed from Cluster object topology."

    1. Perform these steps in SmartConsole (before removing an interface from Cluster object topology, set it to 'Private'):
      1. Open the cluster object properties.
      2. Go to the 'ClusterXL and VRRP' pane.
      3. Under the 'Upon cluster member recovery' section, make sure the 'Maintain current active Cluster Member' option is selected.
      4. Go to the 'Network Management' pane.
      5. Highlight the interface by clicking on it once and then click on 'Edit' button.
      6. Remove the Virtual IP address from the pair of the interfaces that should be removed from Cluster object topology.
      7. In the 'Network Type' dropdown, select 'Private' (for the interfaces that should be removed from Cluster object topology). This will remove the interface from the Cluster and it will not send/receive any CCP packets - hence any change that can happen to the interface on either cluster member will not cause a failover
      8. Click on 'OK' to apply the changes.
      9. Proceed with installing the relevant policy to that cluster


Then further on down, Point 5 C says to do the same again…

    1. Perform these steps in SmartConsole:
      1. Open Cluster object properties.
      2. Go to the 'Network Management' and then highlight the interface by clicking on it once and then click on 'Edit' button.
      3. Remove the Virtual IP Address from the interface.
      4. Remove the interface from the Topology table from each member.
      5. Click on 'OK' to apply the changes.
      6. Go to the 'ClusterXL and VRRP' pane.
      7. Under the 'Upon cluster member recovery' section, select the desired setting.
      8. Install the relevant policy onto the cluster object.


I don't understand.  How can I possibly Remove the  Virtual IP Address twice in SmartConsole?

The SK looks to have been amended since.
