Symptoms

Oracle Hardware Management Pack (OHMP) provides host access to the ILOM via the ilomconfig command.  In some cases, ilomconfig requests between the host and SP fail with the following message:

# ilomconfig list interconnect

 From the /var/svc/log/network-ilomconfig-interconnect:default.log file;
