The issue is i can't ping the Lom on my system after i modify the ifcfg file for a port on my emulex adapter (NIC/FCoE). I disabled firewall and masked iptables. BTW, I'm in a testing/automation environment. I know for previous version of redhat when i made a change to the ifcfg files, i had to delete the 70-persistent-net.rules file and reboot.
