ESXi 6.5 stop responding when i try to delete vmknic

6.5.0 Update 1 (Build 6765664)

I disable iSCSI and try to delete not used anymore vmk3 from VMkernel NICs.

GUI or CLI - same result. ESXi stop responding.

In log i found this. Please, any advice. Thank you.

Were you using software iSCSI initiator? What does your ESXi configuration look like regarding vmk3 even though you say you disabled it? Did you still have it bound?

Did you have that vmkernel port bound when you tried to delete it?
