While messing with some options in my lab, I noticed that once I added an iSCSI software Adapter, every option to remove it is greyed out.
Crazy enough, the only way to remove an iSCSI adapter in VMware is to:
- Right click->Properties on the adapter
- Click on the Configure… button
- Uncheck Enabled under Status in the General Properties dialog box
- Restart the ESXi host (yep, you literally have to restart the whole box)
Upon restart, the adapter will be removed automatically. If anyone finds another solution, please drop a comment below and let me know 🙂
