Added new ESXI 5.1 host to VCenter- all storage adapators are set to type Block SCSI

I just added a new Dell 620 as a new ESXI 5.1 host to my VCenter.  Everything is good except my storgae adaptors. All are showing marked as Block SCSI.  Obviously I cannot attach to any datastores or even do very much of anything.

Need some help.

I know how to do all this- but its the binding part where the problem is coming in- when I try to bind either through ( nothing to select to bind to) or through SSH I get this message-login as: root
Using keyboard-interactive authentication.

The time and date of this login have been sent to the system logs.

VMware offers supported, powerful system administration tools.  Please
see www.vmware.com/go/sysadmintools for details.

The ESXi Shell can be disabled by an administrative user. See the
vSphere Security documentation for more information.

why not use the GUI to bind if using ESXi 5.1 ?
