Check "PCI-devices" and edit Your card IRQ setting to "disabled" for those ports.

I have this possibilty to disable interrupt on Embedded HP NC373i, but not on NC325m. Only change IRQ number is possible.

Re: Disabling HP NC325m

well ..not so "cool" way to do it, but disable interconnect downlink ports for those two.

Re: Disabling HP NC325m

What do you hear exactly by Interconnect modules ?
Is this 3020 cisco switch.
That means, I must disable ports on switch ?

Yes Cisco 3020 is a interconnect module. How many there is and in what interconnect bays?

Re: Disabling HP NC325m

So I have four 3020.
In this blade, I have a total of six NIC(2x373i embedded, 4x325m mezzanine), four connected and two not connected to interconnect modules. And that is precisely these two I need disable.

Re: Disabling HP NC325m

One way to disable two of the four ports on the NC325m would appear to be to install it in mezzanine slot 1.

Re: Disabling HP NC325m

OK, so You have two nics in 325m which has no connectivity to interconnect module. And those two You want to disable? I think the easiest way is to buy a 2-port nic =)

Re: Disabling HP NC325m

for sure buy a 4 ports mezzanine for only use 2 ports was not the best idea I had.
But you're right, I probably change it for 373m, It's the best way for the moment.
