How to disable one port in HBA Card ?!

We have a new blade - 460c G9 attached to C7000, 2 qlogic dual port HBA cards are installed.  

What is the process to disable just one port on one card ? 

OS is RHEL

I am thinking you may have to do this at the switch level.  What type of interconnect are the ports connected to?

Re: How to disable one port in HBA Card ?!

Its Flex10 at the backend.  Not sure of upstream switch after that.   

How to do this at Flex10 level ? 

 Basically, I am trying to disable the following port which is "down" - 

 

HBA Model QMH2572 SN: MY55150WX4

      1: Port   2: WWPN: 50-01-43-80-31-80-DE-A6 Link Down

      2: Port   1: WWPN: 50-06-0B-00-00-C2-66-4C Online

   HBA Model QMH2572 SN: MY55180XT5

      3: Port   1: WWPN: 50-06-0B-00-00-C2-66-48 Online

      4: Port   2: WWPN: 50-06-0B-00-00-C2-66-4A Online

You may be able to do something with the QLogic SANsurfer tool if its available for RedHat.  I am not sure though.
