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
