Mapping iSCSI connections for Xen Servers

I am setting up a new Farm and have HPBL460c G8 blades.  I have configured the Shared uplink sets for iSCSI traffic and assigned them to the server profiles.  On the physical blade, I only see the two NICS that I setup for the management network, not the iSCSI NICs.  When I look under the NICS tab in XenCenter, I see 8 NICS, but only the two management are connected.  

Can anyone point me in the right direction for setting up the two iSCSI connections?  Is it within the actual blade, or is it something in XenCenter?

Thanks so much!

The number of uplinks in the interconnect have been logically split in the blade, which is why you see multiple NICs. I hope that this is the first XenServer you are setting up. Make sure that the number of NICs on each XenServer host is identical.
