Unable to add vmotion networking to ESX Server

Current Setup:
4 Phyical Nics - 3 assigned to Vswitch
 1 - Service Console
 1 - Virtual Machine Network
 1 - ISCI trying to assign vmotion to a new Vswitch which is assigned to the other spare Nic

When I try to setup vmotion i get the following error Error during the configuration of the host: SysinfoException: NodeID(17); Status(195887109)=Already exists; Message= Unable to set

This will also happen if I have vmotion setup then try to create a new Vswitch and assign the portgroup for ISCI. We have 3 esx servers and its happening w/ all of them. It is only happening when I have the ISCI setup. I am aware that ISCSI and Vmotion are both considered vmkernel portgroups and you can only have 1 vmkernel portgroup per virtual switch. It looks as though it thinks its creating it on the same Vswitch where ISCI is setup?

 ESXcfg-vswitch -l
 Switch Name Num Ports Used Ports Configured Ports Uplinks vSwitch0 32 3 32 vmnic0 PortGroup Name Internal ID VLAN ID Used Ports Uplinks Service Console portgroup0 0 1 vmnic0 Switch Name Num Ports Used Ports Configured Ports Uplinks vSwitch1 64 2 64 vmnic1 PortGroup Name Internal ID VLAN ID Used Ports Uplinks Virtual Machine Networkportgroup4 0 0 vmnic1 Switch Name Num Ports Used Ports Configured Ports Uplinks vSwitch2 64 3 64 vmnic3 PortGroup Name Internal ID VLAN ID Used Ports Uplinks Fas270 portgroup9 0 1 vmnic3

Tried to: Created a new Vswitch saved it then tried to assign the port group to it and still getting the same error message. I am able to assign just a VM portgroup to it though. ex VM Portgoup. example Switch Name Num Ports Used Ports Configured Ports Uplinks vswitch3 64 2 64 vmnic2 PortGroup Name Internal ID VLAN ID Used Ports Uplinks test portgroup23 0 0 vmnic2

What IP addresses and gateways are you using for the Service Console and VM Kernel?

The solution to this problem was we had to put the ISCSI on a different subnet we put it on the 10 address space and it works fine
