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!!!!

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...

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.
