What controller, exactly?  There are several SAS variations, like SAS 1.0 vs SAS 1.1.  Any board with BIOS released back in 2006 is highly suspect.  If 10/1/2006 IS the last version of bios then that card just should not be deployed.   Many changes have been made in SAS expanders since 2003-2004 when that card must have been designed that may just prevent it from working at all.

Presumably they are using the SC08Ge HBA as listed on www.hp.com/storage/spock

All good points, figured it out.  Adapters are SAS1068E.  Soultions as it turns out was how the host were mapped on the MSA.  Once I started over from scratch thing came together.  Two VM hosts both with two Adapters, the MSA also has two controllers.  Thanks again for everyones input :)

SAS1068E is a chipset not a make/model of adapter .. but no matter, it is up.  I would still double-check BIOS and MPT fusion revision (along with adapters).  If the cards were LSI-branded, then they would have had a half-dozen firmware updates from 2006 to 2010.
