MSA 1000 & HBA compatibility

Dear All,
I plan to install two AD167A HP FC2143 4Gb PCI-X 2.0 HBA (Emulex) in DL380 G4 with Windows 2003.
This server should be connected to MSA 1000 via two MSA 1000 internal FC Switches.
Is this configuration supported considering installation of MPIO for MSA 1000 or I have strictly use FCA2214(Qlogic)?

Re: MSA 1000 & HBA compatibility

Dear all,
I am using MSA2012fc (Series of MSA2000fc). I installed 2x AD167A(FC2143)in DL380 G4, also FC2143, MPIO and MSA2012fc SES drivers are installed.

Both FC card WWN are found in HP System Insight Management instead of printed on card.
WWN1: 20000000C969B466
WWN2: 20000000C969B9DE
I add new ports in msa2012fc. Added both ports give an error in Controller/Ports Colume "No Ports found"
I check the physical connectivity of fiber cable both are cabled with SAN switch.

I have two Questions...
Q1: Is this configuration is supported with MSA2012FC?
Q2: Kindly Advise for further configuration?

Finally i attached the SNAP SCREEN SHOT of Problems. See attached files.
