MD3000 - Replaced SAS5/e card on connected host

We have a 2-node active/passive Windows Server 2008 environment connected to an MD3000 storage unit.

On the passive host we started getting BSOD which was identified as being a faulty SAS5/e card, we have replaced this and now within Dell OpenManage we're seeing disk errors which from what we can tell is related to the MD3000 not knowing about the new card's WWN/HBA address/ports.

How do we change the MD3000 settings to recognise the new card so the errors go away? The MD3000 unit itself shows as "optimal" so we know there aren't any actual disk issues, and putting the old card back in, despite it causing BSOD, clears the errors.

Thank you in advance.

The World Wide ID for the SAS card has changed so you have to edit the host details under MDSM to reflect that. Not quite sure where it's listed though, think you highlight the host under configuration and there's an option to change HBA when you right click it. The manual just tells how to add a new host and how to add that to the current host group which will work but's a bit messy.
