BL20p and QLogic Mezzanine Card - W2K takes 17 minutes to start

Hello, everybody.
I'd like to know if some of you have had this problem before.
I have a Blade BL20p Server with a FC Mezzanine card (2 FCA QLogic) and when I start this server connected to a HP SAN it takes 17 minutes to start. If I start it with the fibre cables unplugged, it starts in only 2 minutes, so far.
I have updated all the drivers at server side, but the SAN is not updated.
The SAN Swithes are not zoned and the firmware of VCS controllers is 3.025.
Thank for your help.

Thanks for your response.
I can't swap card because they're integrated in mezzanine card and I have another blade but it has the same configuration.

When I boot with only one channel it takes about 10 minutes to start.
If the second cable is plugged after the server boots up, it take a time to recognize the card, I don't have the time elapsed yet.
