You can configure the IPs in the Ports configuration
1) click on properties of the  VSwitch
2) in the "ports" labels select the item that hosts the VmKernel Port
3) click on properties and in the box that will open you cna find the ip configuration

You can only configure an IP for a VMkernel port, be it for a service console, vmotion, NFS, iSCSI, whatever. The observed IP range simply refers to what IP addresses have been seen by the vmnic. If on your server that is lacking the 0.0.0.1 just means that the no traffic with a source or destination of 0.0.0.1 has been seen by that vmnic.

Hope that helps
