C7000 Flex 10 virtual connect fiber channel

hello,
I am installing two chassis C7000 with Virtual Connect Fibre Channel. I will install the ESXi 4.1 on the BL460 G7 blade. I wish to boot from SAN. I create profiles. Each blade has two fiber channel card, I turned and I filled a WWPN in primary and secondary in the profile.But I have a random operation. So I checked the zonning point to point is good.On one slide I have two, one or zero path.I checked the NPVI is active on the ports of my fiber switches. In contrast, in virtual connect when I look at the status of the fiber card fiber channel module I have not logged in when I'm missing paths.For me the problem just the relationship between the blade and the Virtual Connect Fibre Channel Module. Attached is a screen, the four blades are started and have the same profile configuration. And yesterday before the blade stopping it worked.
I also opened a box from HP.

Cordially

It won't say logged in unless the OS has loaded.

Problem is that even the OS loaded it remains the same even with the OS loaded. And I have a blade that still has not logged in so I can not install ESXi because it does not see the LUN

you can configure port mapping by login in to onborad adminstrator , and check the currect port mapping settigs. If any of the ports are not mapped to any of the bays you can start the new wizard to start the mapping the devices.

Ports are mapped (see attachment). I even reboot my Virtual Connect fiber.

If you can, try switching a working and non-working blade. If the fault follows the hardware it's likely to be an issue with the mezzanine on the blade. If not, then it's likely to be a zoning issue.

Re: C7000 Flex 10 virtual connect fiber channel

When you say that it is not working: what does that mean?

When you go into the FC HBA BIOS it doesn't see any LUNS or?

As always, are you running a good firmware set?
For example, are you running FOS 6.3.0x on the switches? (if they are brocade).
