Are ESXi 6.5 hosts are setup as follows: 1x fiber card with 2 ports. All guest and NFS storage traffic goes over these to interfaces. I need to setup a new VMkernal adapter for iSCSI traffic. I have already created the software iscsi adapter and vmkernal port group. When I try and bind the vmk to the adapter, it does not list any available vmkernel interfaces
The only way I was able to get this to work on to remove a pNIC from the current vswitch0 and setup the vmk on a new switch with only 1 pNIC

(if the interfaces are missing to bind to, this could be because VMKernel Portgroup is currently detecting two nics, change in teaming!)
So check that you use Switch Override, and select a nic as unused, not Active or Standby.
and repeat for he other paths as required.
I think we are going to need a screenshot, unless teaming profiles are in use ?
is this VSS or VDS ?
If it does not list them, that's because the physical nics, are in a configuration which is not supported for binding (obviously that's why they are not listed).
