What is going on here...
I admit I had just started to play with SR-IOV for the first tie on a new HP server I had.
My server has 8 physical NICs.
(1 Broadcom Quad Port card & 4 Intel ports on the motherboard)
I toggled SR-IOV on all the ports that it allowed, only to see all but ONE physical NIC disappear when I rebooted.
Well, I wasn't prepared to deal with that, so I went back and toggled SR-IOV back OFF and rebooted.
Upon reboot, I found all my Broadcom NICs again, but the Intel NICs were still missing.
So I went back and found that SR-IOV was still enabled/active.
I toggled it off and rebooted AGAIN.
I cannot disable SR-IOV on the Intel NiCs on the motherboard.
Since it was a new install, and I had work to do with the server, I had to re-install it - which I am doing while I type this.
So, what was THAT all about?!
Why would the web interface allow me to enable it if it wasn't capable?
I didn't force it or anything.
Once card allowed the toggle as expected, but the other offboard Broadcomm would turn on, but not off.
