I recently decomissioned an old server that was connected to 3 LUNs on my CX300.  My HBAs are SLA2340s and my McData switches are Sphereon 4500s.  I have accessed the web interface on both the SAN and the switches.  I have created a new storage group for the server that I have installed the cards into that i want to utilize the 3 LUNs from.  I have installed the Navisphere client and agent.  I have also done basic config on the cards through SANsurfer.  My problem is that i cannot get the PowerPath client to see the SAN, nor can I see the new host from the unit.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Is this something that should happen automatically or do I have to manually register the host?  If so, how would I do that.  I have also created a zone for my HBAs on both switches.  They seem to be communicating with them fine, just not the Clariion.
