Symptoms

Following a SysFW upgrade various ILOM variables are reset to defaults, such as /HOST/bootmode config, and OBP env settings (boot device, auto-boot, etc).

  /HOST/bootmode
   Properties:
       config = factory-default
       expires = (none)
       script = setenv auto-boot? false
       state = normal

 /HOST/domain
   Properties:

 /HOST/domain/control
   Properties:
       auto-boot = enabled
       boot_guests = enabled

This is seen on upgrades between 8.2.0.a and 8.2.2.b, from 8.2.2.b onwards this issue is fixed.
