This is an IBM p9 system with AIX 7.2. End user rebooted the system and it came up with the auto config (normally seen the first time you boot a system) on the console. Unfortunately they then selected auto config tcpip and it did, change ip address of ent0 to 0.0.0.0. After finding that I used smit to change it back to what it was supposed to be. However, now each time the system is reboot if always goes back to 0.0.0.0! I can't find what is doing this or how to make the change back to the "real" ip permanent.

Any suggestions.
