Finally figured out what the issue was. 

 

The Mini-SAS HD 4x connectors on the server end were plugged in upside down.  Appeared to be fully seated but discovered that they were not latched.  Turned them over and as soon as they latched in, the link light on the MSA 2040 SAS controller came on and server can now see the LUN provided by the shared array.
