vSphere 4.0 - Host Connection to Shared Storage Problem

I have a vCenter 4.0 environmnet with two clustered hosts, .1.81 and .1.82.
.1.81 is working perfectly, but .1.82 is not connected to our iSCSI SAN. When navigating to .1.81-->Configuration-->Storage, all 5 LUNs show as connected. When navigating to the storage configuration of .1.82, only the local storage is shown.
When I try to Add Storage to .1.82 no LUNs show under Select Disk\LUN (it display's Loading... for a few moments but then never displays anything). This is also true for .1.81--although it is already connectted correctly to the LUNs.
I have confirmed the port group configuration settings match for .1.81 and .1.82.
I have also confirmed identical iSCSI Software Adapter settings. Both hosts are using addresses for static and dynamic discovery. Dynamic: .100.10, Static: .100.10-13.

Assistance would be much appreciated!

you didn't mention what the iSCSI target was, but you may need to present the LUN's to the 2nd server within the SAN setup
