Windows 2003 - HP Proiant disolve NIC teaming

Got a Windows 2003 server running on a HP Proliant and two of the 1Gb interfaces are configured as a NIC team. Want to revert back to standard 1Gb interface.

Am I right here?

1) Note, IP address assigned to NIC team.
2) Remove bother physical adaptors using NIC team config utility.
3) Assign IP address to one of the physical interfaces.

Questions:-
1) Do I need to reboot?
2) Is it ok to leave bother physical cables connected? Or should I disable the 2nd interface now?

You don't need to reboot but the connection will drop when you dissolved the teaming. It is advisable to log on through iLo if you have configured one.

If you don't need the second NIC, you can disable the interface, that should be ok.

I think from the HP team utility, you might want to first dissolve the team, then you can configure the IPaddress on each NIC.   Like earlier mentioned , it is good to perform the task from iLO.

Hi,

There is KB from HP for removing NIC teaming for the HP servers. Have a look at this http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c01749744&sp4ts.oid=1842779 which details the steps to remove the NIC teaming.
