X1600, WSS2008, Remote Share and Storage Management Error

I have 2 x1600 NAS servers running Windows Storage Server 2008. When I try to connect to them with Share and Storage Management from any remote system, I get the following error:

: Virtual Disk Service initialization failed. It is possible that the connection is blocked by Windows Firewall. A VDS (Virtual Disk Service) error occurred while performing the requested operation.

I tried the obvious step of both allowing the Remote Volume Management in the firewall and disabling the firewall altogether. Neither made a difference. I checked the firewall logs on my workstation and it didn't appear that anything was blocked there either.

I've found scant mention of this issue anywhere online so I'm open to any suggestions.
