I have a Dell 2900 with 4 network ports.  I have a need to attach an APC UPS management card to my network for automated shutdown of my host and guests.  I want to patch the UPS directly to the server.  I do not want the second NIC to be a team on the current virtual switch but to look like a physical port on the switch.

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.
