How to connect Windows Server 2008 to an EMC CX3-10

I need to get 4 servers (will be 2 SQL clusters) connected to my SAN (EMC CX3-10c /NS20).  I have added a new DAE, created Raid groups, created storage groups, carved luns and added them to the storage groups via Navisphere.  On the Windows Server 2008 Ent box I am not sure what I need to do.  Looking at the EMC docs and what they tech support sent me, I need the iSCSI initiator, something with MPIO, and Powerpath iSCSI.  I've done this (well apparently not) but in Navispere, when I open the storage group and select connect host...the dialog box that opens sees nothing...just a blank box.  Any guidance on the steps needed to connect a 2008 server to the SAN would be appreciated.    I have scheduled a FLARE upgrade for later in the week just in case its code related.

The NS20 and CX3-10C (yes, the CX3-10C is the underlying storage for the NS20) are different things - and the way you present storage is different. Are you presenting storage from the CLARiiON or the NS20?

To be honest, I dont know.  Do I have to do both or is it better to do this from one vs. the other?

The Flare/Dart upgrades corrected this issue.  As soon as the upgrades completed, the servers were present and I was able to attach them to the storage group.
