I see no port binding done for the software iSCSI adapter

can you please perform port binding with a dedicated vmkernel adapter just for iSCSI traffic..

I am sure you have a vmkernel adapter in the same network as the iSCSI array, otherwise you would not be able to see the static iSCSI targets.

do the Network port binding --> add port binding and add vmkernel for iSCSI into this. do a rescan and check

Please also note that esxi 6.7 and the MSA 1040 is not a supported configuration .

HPE MSA 1040, MSA 2040, and MSA 2042 Storage GL220P010 Firmware Release Notes

The MSA firmware for the 1040 supports up to esxi 6.5

If you experience weird issues - both VMware and HPE will wash their hands of you.("its not supported")

For example you should try to amend the Pool containing your ESXi datastores (add an additional disk group to it or a read-cache)

After doing that reboot one esxi host and see if the datastore loads - the datastore will not load - I've comes across this problem on the MSA2040 and 6.7.
