ESXi 6.7 - iSCSI software adapter status is offline

In This Article:

Probelm:

After rebooting ESXi 6.5 host (later updated to 6.7), you are unable to scan datastores, and you notice that the iSCSI Software Adapter status is Offline.

unable to scan datastores

I tried:

  • Disable and enable the adapter from CLI and web client.
  • Reboot the ESXi.
  • Update ESXi 6.5 to ESXi 6.7

Solution:

The solution is simple, Unbind and bind back the VMK ports from the iSCSI Software Adapter.

@ESXi host

  1. Go to Storage / Adapters / “vmhba64” / Configure iSCSI
Unbind and bind back the VMK ports from the iSCSI Software Adapter
  1. Select VMkernel NIC, and Remove port binding. Then, add the VMkernel NIC again.
Unbind and bind back the VMK ports from the iSCSI Software Adapter

I was switching my storage array, so I migrated the VMs from that old datastore/storage to a new datastore/storage. The old datastore was shared by 3 ESXi hosts, no cluster. After migrating the VMs and unmount/delete the datastore, it was still presented in two of the ESXi hosts and was marked as inaccessible.
