VMWare does not see Flexfabric CNA storage LUN

I have the new Flexfabric CNAs and Flexfabric Virtual Connect system. I also have an EVA8400 connected via a Brocade switch (Interconnect in C7000).

I am able to create a LUN off the array and see it when I install OS's on a blade (Win/Linux/XenServer) but VMWare ESX4.1 won't see it at install.

VMWare says the Emulex CNA is supported native in ESX 4.1 so I am not sure what is the problem. I also tried to load the ESX Driver CD at install but the ILO issues with VMWare (mounting CD at prompt not seen) at install hit me.

Any ideas on how this can be resolved?

User error - looked at the HP support site and applied the NC551M VMWare drivers at VMWare install and it worked OK.
