Disable Fibre Channel Ports on single Server (Bl460c G6)

Mark had a Fibre Channel port question:

 

*********************

 

Is there some way from the Onboard Administrator to disable the Fibre Channel ports associated with a LPe1105 HBA on a single server? We are having an issue when loading Linux and the install wanting to load grub on a LUN associated with a SAN array. We are not using Virtual Connect.

Input from Chris:

 

*****************

 

No.  The OA cannot control the state of a device installed in a server.  You can boot into the ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU) and disable the device there.  Also, the device name for a logical disk on a SmartArray controller is cciss/c0d0, not /dev/sd[a|z].
