esx iscsi error Call ïscsimanager.query candidatenics"

In my lab environment I used iscsi as my shared storage. Today I have removed network adapters from software iscsi adapter to do some other networking stuff. After a while when im trying to reconfigure iscsi im getting below error

Call ïscsimanager.query candidatenics”

To resolve this problem I had to reset iscsi from esx shell by following below steps


Logged to the esx host & find iscsi related config files


Iscsi related config files are stored under /etc/Vmware/vmkiscsid folder


Navigate to /etc/vmware/ folder


Delete all the files under /etc/VMWare


Reboot the ESX host
