Do you have the Operating Systems Installed on the blades? Typically the OS and drivers have to be installed for the fabric to see the HBAs

Since you're using HP blades install the HP branded version of ESXi, it will have the MIBs for better reporting on the hardware out of vCenter.

You will not see the virtual HBAs presented by Virtual Connect until you go into Virtual Connect manager and configure it. I hope you also have Virtual Connect Ethernet modules since you cannot use VC FC modules unless there are VC ethernet modules in bays 1 and 2.

Simple overview from Emulex -  http://www.emulex.com/artifacts/16570612-7061-4004-93a9-c63273f50cdf/elx_sis_all_hpbladesystem_8gb_vmware.pdf and there is a link to the VC cookbook in that document.

N.B. You do not need full fabric to connect via VC since it is not a switch but it doesn't matter that you have it now.

Actually there's a better link from Emulex - google for "5 Steps for Deploying 8Gb/s Fibre Channel with HP c-Class" and "Using HP Virtual Connect on HP BladeSystem c-Class with" and read those two PDFs, and read the cookbook that is in one of them.

(acrobat's just gone wrong on my PC so can't post the direct links).
