MSA2012fc help

I have a msa2012fc.
Port 0 is directly connected to a server and the server can see the luns and v-drives.
Port 1 is connected to a Storageworks 8/24 San Switch (I have configured the ports as per the EZSwitchSetup application).
The servers (fc1142sr 4gb pci-e hba)that are connected to the san switch can see the luns but not the v-drives.

Have I missed seomthing or can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?
Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi ,

I think that you must make a choice between direct connect or fabric connect .

You can confirm this in the installation guide .

Ok so must I remove the server directly connected to the msa2012fc and just use the switch? Is there a seeting somewhere that I need to change to use the fabric connect?
