[Veritas-bu] Compaq Blade Servers

We have been using Compaq Blade servers as Media servers in a SSO
environment and believe the integrated HBA's (w/ qlogic chip set) may be
the source of our grief (loosing tape drives, then finding them again
with a different index/path). The Blade servers are running Win2000 and
the NetBackup ver is 4.5. Each HBA has it's own zone in the SAN and can
not see other HBA's and only the tape drives in it's zone. "Persistent
Binding" is set on all the HBA's using a custom SANserfer utility we
were provided by HP that allows us to use persistent binding, but we
still have this problem. 
We went to Veritas and HP to ask If they had anyone who is using the
Compaq Blade servers as Media servers with SAN attached tape drives.
They could not find any customers using this configuration. 
My question is... Is anyone out there using Compaq Blade servers as
NetBackup Media servers or even tested this configuration?
