The user is Unable to set LOOPBACK for the  NEP server independently.

The customer wants one of the Network Element Processors (NEPs) to be in loopback mode independently, while all other NEPs should hit their respective Network Elements. The customer tried the following scenarios but work orders were still failing.

1. Customer modified the ASAP.cfg file where global LOOPBACK_ON parameter is set to 0 and under [NEPq] server section, LOOPBACK_ON is set to 1.
2. Customer modified tbl_ne_config table of SARM where LOOPBACK_ON field is set to 1 for NEPq

Note: In both the above scenarios, we are seeing LOOPBACK_ON = 1 in the list of Order parameters passed in JNEPq.diag log
