Ahh, that explains it, thanks.
The management cards seem to cause multiple problems with the FreeBSD em
driver over time. I don't want to give up the IPMI cards so I'll just
keep using system reset to get em1 working, it usually only takes 1 or 2
My IPMI card has an option for external/dedicated LAN port so I might
try that also.
