Question - Can we disable one FlexNic port of a FlexFabric LOM ?

Dimitris had a FlexibleLOM question:

 

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

 

Customer wants to have in each 10G physical port the following :

 

FlexNic1 = 1Gb Ethernet

FlexHBA = 8Gbps FC

FlexNic2 = 1Gb Ethernet

FlexNic4 = 0

 

I know that each FlexNic even declared as auto will take at least 100Mbps. So can we disable FlexNic4 in order to have pure 1Gb for the rest of FlexNics?

From Robert:

 

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

 

If you do not add that fourth flex connection in the server profile, that 100M minimum is not applied.  And even if it is added, the 100M minimum bandwidth is not allocated until a VC network is assigned in the server profile.
