Missing "Network Configuration" tab in 5.1 Software iSCSI Initiator?

I just upgraded a host from 4.1 to 5.1.

The host had twin iSCSI VMKernels under 4.1 and was connecting to a bunch of iSCSI LUNs using Round Robin Multipath.

Post-upgrade the iSCSI volumes are seen, are available, and multiple paths are showing, however if I look at the properties of the software iSCSI initiator the only tabs I have are "General", "Dynamic Discovery" and "Static Discovery" - there is no "Network Configuration" tab.

Am I missing something obvious here? Smiley Happy

looks like its a product issue. The upgrade scripts are not making necessary changes to add "Network Configuration" feature to the existing iSCSI adapters.

Its good to open an SR with VMware support to get a confirmation on this.

try your luck with web client.

in Web client select the adapter in Host  > Manage > Storage > Storage Adapter. And check for the option Netwokr Port Binding.

It was there in the web client so I exited and restarted VI Client and guess what.. it's there!

Thanks.
