Refer to attached hardware BOM list.

I'm getting an IBM Bladecenter H with 2x HX5 servers to
be inserted into the Bladecenter chassis for a customer's
project: both blade HX5 run ESXi 5.0 & houses 4-5 VMs on
each ESXi host

My customer wants us (being the middleman) to give a
configuration doc of how & what we're going to configure on

a) BNT Nortel LAN switch to connect to the customer's
   existing Cisco4500 switches (a pair of it which I believe
   are trunked together).  For each of the 6 BNT LAN ports
   per server, 1 for vMotion, 1 for Management, 4 for VMs
   trunked ports.  Pls provide me detailed steps on how
   to configure the 6 ports (step by step & with screen
   shots if possible)

&

b) the QLogic FC switch on how to configure it to connect
    the customer's existing FC switch (believe it's Brocade
    model from EMC)  to get LUN presentation  (pls advise
    if this is single LUN to all 9 VMs so that they can migrate
    between the 2 hosts;  3 pairs of VMs that are NLB'ed to
    each other while the remaining 3 VMs are not related
    to each other but need to be able to vMotion to any of
    the two ESXi hosts).  2 FC ports per ESXi host.  Any
    multipathing on the Qlogic switches to the pair of EMC
    Brocade switches?

Pls provide step by step instructions/screenshots as never
touched these hardware before.
