Description (partial)

After some time, the connection between NFVIS and CIMC via the network fails
`system settings cimc-access enable` does not provide CIMC access over ssh port 20227

`system settings cimc-access enable` configured

public (active)
  target: default
  icmp-block-inversion: no
  interfaces: GE0-0 GE0-1 MGMT int-LAN int-mgmt-net-br lan-br wan2-br wan-br
  services: ssh dhcpv6-client snmp
  ports: 830/tcp 1610/udp 22/tcp 80/tcp 443/tcp
  `masquerade: no`
  forward-ports: port=20226:proto=udp:toport=161:toaddr=
  rich rules: 
        rule family="ipv4" source address="" masquerade

After getting to NFVIS Linux shell I found that this internal IP is unreachable, neither ARP records nor icmp reachability,

[root@emea-spcloud-encs01 admin]# arp -a

The following steps fixed the issue,
system settings cimc disable -> commit -> enable -> commit 
[root@emea-spcloud-encs01 admin]# ping
