 When logging into an Infiniband switch as ilom-admin the prompt hangs and never get's to ILOM
When loged in as root and attempting to start ILOM using the spsh command, it hangs and doesn't enter ILOM

The following command (Note: if the switche was recently booted, you may have to execute this command a couple of times to see the error):

# service ilom status

Returns the following:

[root@localhost ~]# service ilom status
ILOM stack is partly started with 14 processes.
ILOM daemons that failed to start are : IPMIMain MsgHndlr PEF LAN
However, ILOM stack subsystem is locked..... OK!


Disabling IPv6 on the Infiniband switch:

-> set /SP/network/ipv6/ state=disabled
