OPs Centre Agent Configuration Failure (EC 12C R4, solaris 11.4)

Hi there.

Im experiencing and issue deploying the OPs Centre agent to one of my IO Domain hosts. The Agent does install but fails on configurations with the following


executing step : scn_agent

scn_agent Common Agent Container environment is OK

Configuring for a Virtualization Controller

Checking if the cacao scn-agent instance exists

creating cacao scn-agent instance

Unexpected return code [1] from command: [/usr/sbin/svcadm refresh -s svc:/application/management/common-agent-container-1:scn-agent].

Cannot register SMF service for instance: [scn-agent].

cannot create instance <scn-agent>


When i look in to things a little i see the svc:/system/sp/management:default service is in maintenance mode.

# svcs -xv svc:/system/sp/management:default

svc:/system/sp/management:default (Oracle Server Hardware Management Agent)

State: maintenance since Tue Mar 10 09:13:30 2020

Reason: Start method failed repeatedly, last died on Killed (9).



   See: /var/svc/log/system-sp-management:default.log

Impact: This service is not running.

The log file shows

"Could not open bmc device: Resource temporarily unavailable"

Now, interestingly enough, any interaction with the SP results in and error


# ipmitool -I bmc lan print

Could not open bmc device: Resource temporarily unavailable

Unable to connect on interface bmc

My other servers (with IODomains on) are fine, just this one seems to error. Any suggestions as im a little lost
