Symptoms

FSE connected his laptop to a ZFS appliance service processor net management port to upgrade the service processor ILOM BIOS/firmware.  He could not ping the SP even though /SP/network appeared to be set up properly

Changes

 On a normal array when a show /SP/network is run on the service processor from the serial console, we find the

service processor managementport parameter is set to :

       managementport = /SYS/SP/NET0

On the array with the problem we see that management is connected to

       managementport = /SYS/MB/NET0

This actually correlates with igb0.  So, they are using igb0 for ILOM management
