How do I remove an iSCSI Software Adapter in VMware?

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:

  1. Right click->Properties on the adapter
  2. Click on the Configure… button
  3. Uncheck Enabled under Status in the General Properties dialog box
  4. 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 🙂
