Disabled NIC agents on HP System Management Homepage

I have 5 ESX 4.0 servers running in a cluster. Each server has a total of 6 Ethernet NICs but I'm only using 4 NICs. Because of this, the local System Management Homepage is reporting an alarm on those 2 interfaces and it is consequently showing up in the HP Systems Insight Manager server.

Is there a way to disable the agent for these two specific NICs? I know that on a Windows Server this can be done from the HP Management Control Panel, but I can't seem to find a way to do it on and ESX host.

I use simple loop-back connectors to keep the agent happy. By simple I mean they are not fully wired so the port negotiates to 100 MegaBit/sec only which helps me to see which is in production and which is not.
