Associate a distributed port with a network resource pool to give you greater control over the bandwidth given to the port.

  2. Click the Manage tab and click Ports.
  3. Select a port from the list and click Edit distributed port settings.
  4. In the Properties section, click the Override check box and add or remove the port from a network resource pool.

    If you did not enable port-level overrides, the options are not available.

    • To remove the distributed port from a resource pool, select Default from the Network resource pool drop-down menu.
