Hi I'm an tech sales.
My customer considers if he purchase C240M5 for virtualization servers and aske me how to disable onboard 10G interface on C240M5. The following Vmware site shows vSphere 6.5U1 configuration limit as below:
vSphere 6.5 Update 1 Configuration Maximums - ESXi Host Maximums ( Networking Maximums )https://configmax.vmware.com/guest?vmwareproduct=vSphere&release=vSphere%206.5%20Update%201&categories=2-0
Physical NICsigbn 1 Gb Ethernet ports (Intel)
Physical NICsCombination of 10 Gb and 1 Gb ethernet ports
Sixteen 10 GB and four 1 GB ports
He'd like to use eight 1Gb ports by inserting two I350 cards in a server, and won't use onboard NICs.
Can you tell me how to do that? Can he just do by disabling "LOM Port x OptionROM" option in BIOS?
Go to Solution.
You should be able to disable actual LOM ports (not just the option rom) in the same area of the CIMC advanced BIOS settings.

Thanks, Kirk. I confirmed "All Onboard LOM Ports" option in the BIOS Advanced Settings. Will advice to our partner guy.
