    For intel x540 card, is there a way to force a link up without a cable plugged in?

      We have a Dell server w/ an intel x540 card.  we're using the SR-IOV functionality on the 2 ports on the x540.  However, to get the links up on the Virtual Functions, we need the link up on the physical function, and hence had to plug in a cable between the 2 ports.  Is there a way to force the link up on one or both of the ports so that we don't need a cable plugged in?
