Hello Expert !


                 I have a small issue with a BladeCenter S and I'm wondering if somebody can help me out and figure what is wrong...

Here's what I have:

Blade Center S Chassis
2 X HS 22 Blade with Sas connectivity Card and CFFH 2/4 Ethernet card. Server's have no disk, just an internal usb key with ESXi 4.1 Embedded.
2 X Server connectivity module
2 X Sas Raid module
12 X 600g 15K Sas Disk in 2 storage module.


I try to share a storage pool for all disk between the 2 blade. The setup I'm  trying is explained here http://it20.info/2008/11/enterprise-virtualization-in-a-box/

When I connect with SCM to the SAS and Raid module, I have no problem and the Health is ok.

When I try to assign my Blades to a storage pool, I'm having only one port by blade instead of 2... After that, If I try to assign storage thru vSphere, I'm not able to see the storage on one of the blade...


You can see attached a copy of the AMM service Data and a print screen of what I have in SCM....


Predefined-config 10 have been applied on both SAS Raid controller.



We have been searching around with IBM tech support for 3 days and they can't find anything... they are shipping me other SAS connectivity card, but I doubt it will fix the problem...



Your help is really appreciated !
