Change network interfaces on servers
Abiquo won't discover the new NIC's of a physical machine automatically on its periodic checks. In order to detect new network interfaces you should force the NIC refresh on the hosts via an API call.

- To change a network service type, first remove it from the existing interface by setting this to "Not assigned". Then assign the network service type to a different interface.
- To disable a NIC so that it cannot be used in the platform, select "Not assigned".
- To save the physical machine, you must select at least one network interface.
