Disable BL20p mezzanine laser on server reboots.

Hello -

The QLA2340 and QLA2342 can be configured to disable the HBA laser on server initialization by changing jumper J3 on the card from pins 2-3 to pins 1-2. This is done so that newer switches, such as the Brocade 48000 and DCX won't get switch port errors and fault the port when the servers reboot.

Is there a Fast!Util setting or hardware jumper in the Proliant BL20p to disable the HBA laser on reboot? Currently, the Proliant BL20p mezzanine Qlogic adapter laser is always on and creates problems.
