Description

`ipadm create-if` fails with an unhelpful error message if /etc/ipadm/ipadm.conf does not exist. ipadm does a door_call to ipmgmtd which tries to open ipadm.conf. If the open fails, the error is propagated to ipadm. Creating the directory & making an empty file allows create-if to succeed.

The problem really is with ipmgmtd.

Is this really an issue? ipadm.conf should exist as it's installed with ipmgmtd.
