VMware ESXi 5.5 Add Storage Adapter greyed out

I have a VMware ESXi 5.5 hypervisor with one iSCSI connection. I am trying to add another Storage Adapter (Host > Configuration > Storage Adapters) but the Add button is greyed out. I have spent 2+ hour searching Google and VMware support...but no luck. Any ideas?  Thanks!!!!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can only have ONE iSCSI Storage Adaptor.

Are you trying to add more iSCSI connections ?

Just add the IP Address of your SAN to the Dynamic or Static Discovery.

If you have an extra physical nic you could create another vmkernel port group and bind it to the iscsi software adapter in a active / unused setup...
