Firmware discrepancies between Virtual Connect Release notes

Hello all,

 

I'm having difficulty in using a 409513-B21 4Gb FC VC interconnect (x2) with Virtual Connect Manager 3.61 running on  399593-B21 1/10Gb VC ethernet interconnects

 

Neither of the two 4Gb FC interconnects receive an ip address (I'm using EBIPA) and although the hardware seems to show no problems, management and ip addressing does

 

I'm running OA version 4.22 and can see the 4Gb interconnects, its just that they are not receving ip addresses and hence I have no way of managing them

 

Is running VC 3.61 the problem?

 

I've attached some screenshots to hopefully make it clearer

 

Thanks
