Can you unload a driver instance?

I once thought you could unload a specific driver instance. Ie I have a nic
in slot1 and slot2 using same driver. For some reason I thought you used to
be able to do like an "unload nic slot=1". No?

"remove storage adapter #" where '#' is the number shown after the "-A"
part of the string identifying the adapter when you do "list storage
adapters". Should be in the console help.

For instance, I have a system where "list storage adapters" shows, among
other things,

0x0C [V6E0-A2] ...

so I would enter "remove storage adapter 2"

Yeah I found that in the docs. Worked great. I have 16 servers that suddnely
lost one of their fiber logins but the other instance of the driver was
working. thanks!
