HPE Proliant DL20 NIC 2 Unplugged

I have a ProLiant DL20 GEN 10 server using Windows Server 2016 Standard OS. The server has 2 NICs. iLO is configured with IP Static: 15.10.254.11. Then in Windows Embedded LOM 1 Port 1 with IP Static: 15.10.254.12. Everything went smoothly. After I connect the LAN cable to NIC 2 (Embedded LOM 1 Port 2), the cable is Unplugged. I think maybe a bad LAN cable. But after checking, it turns out that the cable is good. Does the iLO port have to be disabled so that both NICs can be used?

Note:
Once plugged (on NIC 2), I set IP Static: 15.10.254.13, but it can't be accessed (it doesn't point to the host).

The iLO does not need to be disabled for NIC port 2 to be utilized.  A host having multiple NICs on the same subnet is a bad idea for multiple reasons.

Why the cable is Unplugged? Although different subnets, the 2nd NIC is not Plugged.
