It shows you only have 1 fiber channel connected. You need to connect an Ethernet wire to the raid controllers so your dhcp server can issue an ip. From there the raid admin will find the ip automatically. I believe there is a reset button on the back of the raid controllers to reset the default ip.
The default passwords are private and public for the raid admin.

We seem to have a networking issue on our hands here: 169.254.19.191, sub mask 255.255.0.0 is a link local address. Maybe the Xserve defaults that way. Nothing wrong with that,
unless you want the Xserve to connect via your home router, and participate in your home network. Right now it is on its own network, completely isolated from the rest of your home network.
Link Local is workable only for quasi point-to-point networks. DHCP is what I think you need, and with IPv4, connected to your home router, you should have addresses in the 192.x.x.x or 10.x.x.x
range indeed, good point, jezzy!
Maybe you even have to go into the network settings of your router or Mac and switch your IPv6 to "link local only", I don't know.
You should check DHCP settings for that. I am not an IT expert, but maybe this link will prove useful to you: Apple OS X Server: Setting up and managing DHCP - TechRepublic
Good luck, and hopefully some network experts out here will chime in!
Ya humm I did made a big mistake by not telling you guys how i set it up.
The Xserve is directly connected to the Xraid, no router at all. the fibre cable are directly connected to the raid.
i did connect the server to the raid with the ethernet cable and that didn't solve the issue.
I have also manually set the ip and subnet and was still a no go. Also did the reset button on both controllers.
Before i did the reset, i did see the Xraid, but now that i have reset everything, i no longer see it. i put an ip address such as 128.0.1.x and it found it, but not anymore.
Also found out that my PCi card "on the Xserve" takes a 4gb fibre channel cable, even though the max i can get is 2g. the cable i have, connects "links" to the raid, but does not communicate as "previously shown" cable is the not compatible.
So i wonder if this set could solve the issue as it comes as a kit. "by the look of it"
"4Gb SFP to SFP Copper Fibre Channel Cable Kit MA461G\A"
I know the 2 machines can communicate, if only i have the right settings and the right cables. unless some of you have a pair to sell me?
