Activate the Software iSCSI Adapter
You must activate your software iSCSI adapter so that your host can use it to access iSCSI storage.
You can activate only one software iSCSI adapter.
Prerequisites
Required privilege: Host.Configuration.Storage Partition Configuration
NOTE If you boot from iSCSI using the software iSCSI adapter, the adapter is enabled and the network configuration is created at the first boot. If you disable the adapter, it is reenabled each time you boot the host.
