Dissable ef0

Unread postby uunix » Sat Jan 21, 2017 7:38 am

Can someone remind me please how to stop/disable the inbuilt (or any) network card.
I've just done a fresh install, and ef0 is causing issues since I have tg0 enable as primary.

The error message on boot up is, Cannot configure ef0 as IRIS.blah.blah.

Cheers.

Thanks Raion-Fox
That did cross my mind, but couldn't recall if it was permanent.
Anyway, back home now.

Thanks foetz, unfortunately although it worked, it did not solve the overall problem. Anyhow, I have now turned off all my SGI machines at home and at work because if I don't stop dicking about with weird things I will never get my paid for project out, so I will look into it in a few months when I turn them back on. :cry:
