i belive that all of this is done i have checked both switches conf file, when i go to the qlogic bios and scan for device it sees none, in the cisco fabric manger i can see all the devices in the fabric and all the device in the san from that manager but not from the blade.
Have you zoned the new servers so that they can see the  storage?
Points please!

Its up to the moderator, but just to explain why I chose Delete/No Refund.  Delete because it ended with the asker not getting things working after the initial suggestion.  Also, I wasn't seeing a value in committing it to the PAQ database.  No Refund because it ended with you asking a question the asker didn't respond to.

If you do believe that your comment should be accepted as the solution, please explain why.  Personally, I think it just helps the moderator make a more informed decision on how to close the question.  Thanks.
Thanks Cyclops3590,

The reason I raised it is that 99% of connectivity issues are fixed by applying the details of my first post; that is: put the different vendor's switches into compatibility mode, check that domain IDs are different then set identical ED_TOV and RA_TOV
