We recevied a new SCC unit because our old unit didn't have any usable EMAC ports. We are currently trying to install scckit 1.4.0. EMAC ports A,B, and D are enabled according to rocky lake board login screen whose output is provided below:

We have gone through the scckit 1.4.0 instructions repeatedly using EMAC port A but have not been able to ping the cores (We have tried to use the 18.104.22.168 tarball as well). We can however initialize, reset and boot the cores (sccBmc, sccReset, sccBoot). So we believe the pci express interface is working correctly. We have tried to ping the cores without DNS (eg. ping 192.168.x.1) and have recieved no response.
We get green connectivity lights on EMAC port A and flashing activity lights but still are unable to ping the cores. We are bypassing the dns and trying to ping the core ip addresses directly. Below is a copy of our /etc/network/interfaces and /opt/sccKit/systemSettings.ini are provided below. According to the sccGui the cores are booting correctly so we think it is some sort of networking problem. We are utilizing a switch in the same manner as the instructions and have no trouble connecting to the BMC.
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
iface eth1 inet static
iface eth1:1 inet static
Is there anything obvious we are doing wrong? Is there anything we can do to better debug this problem?
