P2000 G3 SAS, C3000 and VMware ESXi 4.1 U1

Hi all,
I can't see any LUN's that I create on P2000 in ESXi. My configuration is like this:

P2000 G3 SAS with dual controllers
c3000 with dual SAS switch connected to P2000 with 2 SAS cables (switch 1/port1 to controller1/port1, switch 2/port1 to controller2/port1}.
2 BL460c G7 with P700m SAS controller on mezanine slot 2

ESXi 4.1 Update 1

What I tried so far:
Updated every device with the latest firmware
On P2000 I created 2 LUNs and presented with explicit mapping to the hosts
On SAS switch, configured multi initiator mode, created a zone with all SAS ports and mapped the 2 blades to that zone.

Any suggestions?
Thank You

Late response, probably already got it.

If zoning and everything is cool - check that you are not using a LUN number > 255 - we had trouble with this both on an XP2000 and our P2000.

If this wasn't the problem, could you please update how you resolved your problem.
