Hey, if you get Emulx HBAnywhere - does that show any details for the card?
Are there any leds lit on the HBA/Switch Port?
Which HBA did you install? (maybe there are drivers for it on hp.com). Sometimes a portdisable 9; portenable 9 on the switch gets it back online.

 

Also you could try with fixing the speed and confirm the HBA settings (also in Emulex' HBAnywhere) like if it's FC_AL or P2P.
