I have a p700m array controller in a HP blade p460c G6 . I am trying to configure the p700 to a MSA2040. How do i configure the p700 array card to see the LUNS i created on the SAN?  I am using a c7000 chassis with gebc2 switches in internconnect bays  and 3GB SAS switch. I can see controller P700m in the storage adapters in vmware 5.5, but can't see external Luns. I can see this Luns from another servers HP DL 380 G8, except blades.

there is known issue with hpsa driver for this controller, you need to use older driver for this controller which support ESXI 5.5

Configure zoning as per HP 3G Virtual SAS Manager User Guide (Example: Configuring shared SAS storage enclosures - page 18), without zoning setup nothing is connected to anything. If you don't see the HBAs when you try to add them to a zone group you've got the HBAs in the wrong mezzanine sockets (or you've got the switches in the wrong bays, it's the same thing) HP StorageWorks 3Gb SAS BL Switch User Guide tells you which slots to put them in. (both are PDFs and I can't get links to PDFs easily but just Google for the document titles).
