HP B-series 8/24c SAN Switch - 2 problems

I have a c7000 with BL460c G1 blades and an attached MSA2324fc through a couple of B-series 8.24c switches.  I recently added another BL460c G1 to slot 1 (It has RHEL 6 installed).  I can see the correct WWN on the server by cat'ing /sys/class/scsi_host/host[01]/device/fc_host:host[01]/port_name.  I can also see from dmesg that QLogic Fibre Channel HBA driver (qla2) is loaded.  So, it looks like the blade is operating correctly.  When I get on the onboard administrator and look at the port mapping for the switch, I see "No connection" under port status for port 1.  I tried accessing the management console, but it seems to be trying to access for some reason.  Any ideas how to get the SAN switch to recogize the fibre channel card in slot 1 and how to get the management console to work?


The switch has a valid ip address in the correct range.  I can ssh to it.  The switch has firmware version 6.2.0d.
