Use the VMware Host Client to bind an iSCSI adapter with a VMkernel adapter on your host.


  • Create a virtual VMkernel adapter for each physical network adapter on your host. If you use multiple VMkernel adapters, set up the correct network policy.
  • Required privilege:Host.Configuration.Storage Partition Configuration


  1. Click Storage in the VMware Host Client inventory, click Adapters, and click Configure iSCSI.
  2. In the Network port bindings section, click Add port binding.
  3. Select a VMkernel adapter to bind with the iSCSI adapter.
    Note: Make sure that the network policy for the VMkernel adapter is compliant with the binding requirements.
    You can bind the software iSCSI adapter to one or more VMkernel adapters. For a dependent hardware iSCSI adapter, only one VMkernel adapter associated with the correct physical NIC is available.
