Re: Remove NIC from HPInsight Monitoring Interface

This might work. you need to shut down the Nics that have no link.

Ifconfig ! To show nics
Ifconfig vmnic4 down ! To shutdown until next reboot
add this command in the boot script (/etc/rc.local file) because on the next boot it will be up again

Re: Remove NIC from HPInsight Monitoring Interface

ifconfig shows just 1 physical NIC. All others are virtual (VM ESX Server). See

On windows I can remove LINK monitoring from HP. I have another monitoring tool to get LINK alarms, so this is useless here in HP. In linux, how can I disable NIC LINK DOWN monitoring?

Thank you.

Re: Remove NIC from HPInsight Monitoring Interface

I see 8 Nics Total (VMnic0 - VMnic7). It seems that they are all "up" but many are not being used. 0, 1, 3 and 6 show TX or RX packets. Since VMnic's 2, 4, 5 and 7 show NO TX or RX packets, i assume they are not used/disconnected. You could look at the back of the server and if you have 4 nics that dont have cables attached then those are the ones. I would shut down those with the above command then go back to the home page and see if it cleared up those errors.

Re: Remove NIC from HPInsight Monitoring Interface

As I Said, those are Virtual NIC created by VMWare. They don't exist in the back of the server.

I have 4 physical NICs as shown by "lspci" commmand
