To Hanccoka: thanks for all your input on my questions! Would be great if you could give input on this question too.

Since the patch on my NAS (by Synology) solved a lot of problems, I tried again configuring my ISCSI's according your link:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/VMWare/A_9250-HOW-TO-Add-an-iSCSI-Software-Adaptor-and-Create-an-iSCSI-Multipath-Network-in-VMware-vSphere-Hypervisor-ESXi-5-0.html

Now I see I have 2 things different then in your manual:
-when I want to bind the vmkernel iscsi network I also see the management vswitch (not in your screenshot)
-I added the dynamic links manually (added both ip addresses of my NAS x.x.x.x)

Furthermore I see events in my ESX (only one configured, in standby mode now):

Now, pracital questions:
------------------------
-please advise if you see any incosistencies in my config
-please advise if you would configure trunks (I will make vlans -new ticket I will create for migrating to vlans -bought a Sonicwall firewall-)

Note: for now (15 minutes) everything is working fine, however no vm's are running on it.

Thanks!
J.
