I'm having this issue since ESX2.5, HP Agents 7.7.0 and older.. Still the same on ESX3 :
I'm currently have a quad port card but only using three of them. The last one is not connected as i do not need it for now.
The problem is that I have an alert from HP Agents that we have an error on this connection. I don't want to connect a cable for now and i'd like to have a green status in Insight Manager..
Is there a way to disable this vmnic ?
I agree with Hernandes there should be an easier way of disabling a nic from ESX rather then going into the bios. Infact I was only able to disable the embedded port the rest of the ports caused a kernel panic error.
