present eva storage to blade not working


we have a c7000 blade system with a brocade switch in the back. A number of servers are connected to the san without any issues.

i have just created a vdisk on the EVA, added a host, presented the disk(unique lun).

fibre switch, created a new alias, added the port. Added the alias to the zone, same config as the rest of the servers but for some reason the disk is not sppearing in windows 2008. I have never seen the brocade built in, do i need to do anything within the Onboard Admin?

Any help much appreciated.

Hi, in windows 2008 you have to install MPIO from windows Features, then select MPIO from Administrative tools and add your EVA in the MPIO. may be this could be problem!
