I have a MB with 2 NICs on it. A switch burned up and took out one of them. There is no way to turn them off individually in the BIOS. Is there a way to turn off one of the ports? Can I unmap it, unbind it, power it down so the system doesn't see it at after boot?
They are mapped as
0000:02.08.1. I want to turn the second one off somehow. Since they both use the same driver, blacklisting the module will take out both of them. Normally I would just live with it but it seems there should be a way to do that, like in Windows I can just disable it. I Actually have the exact same problem on another computer running XCP so this will be a two-fer if it gets figured out.
The OS is 12.4 LTS server with Xen on it.
