VC-FC compatibility with Cisco SAN and hp EBS

According to the June 2008 EBS guide, the VC 1.24 firmware (1.11 on the VC-FC itself) supports connectivity to Brocade switches when working with all hp EBS hardware.

Problem: Windows 2003 servers cannot discover MSL 6030 tape drives or medium changer using VC-FC uplinked to CISCO 9124 MDS switch. Has anyone else experienced this issue and if so, how did you work around it keeping the VC-FC and Cisco Switches?

Servers: (2) Windows 2003 SP2 standard edition
HBA: QMH2462 dual-ported with latest firmware and Storport drivers
Enclosure: c7000 with latest firmware for OA
(2) VC-FC in bay 3 & 4: 1.11 firmware
(2) External Cisco MDS 9124 switches SAN-OS 3.3.1a (latest)
MSL 6030 - latest e1200-320 firmware
