No Redundance with MSA2012sa and ESX4.0

We have two ML460 G6 connectet over
two MSA sas Switches to an MSA2112sa with redundanc SAS Controller in the MSA

we boot from the MSA the ESX Serversoftware.

Etherything is configured for Redundace.

But if i shut down the active SAS Switch.
Both Server get errors and crash.

i check now almost 1 week, and find no config error. (the Luns are correct, and the servers see ethery way to the vdisk partitions in 2 Way)

is there a generaly problim, with ESX installed on a Lun in the MSA?

Are you saying that your ESX hosts booting from the MSA2012sa? Wouldn't you configure your hosts to boot off their local HDD's?
