Configurin EMC SAN disks on AIX

This may sound like an absolute rookie question, and it is.

I have been working on Migrating our HP and Solaris servers to the new EMC SAN and know the routines backwards.

Now we've suddenly got a new IBM server and I don't even know how to check if it is connected to the switch.
Can someone give me detailed instructions - or a doc reference - on how to configure the FC?

Hopefully after that it will be smooth sailing with the EMC naviagent and power path software.

It is a system P6 running AIX 5.3.
I have connected the fibre cable between the server and the switch, and the switch port is active and saying "In_Sync"

NAME
scconf_transp_adap_bge - configure the bge transport adapter DESCRIPTION
Note - Beginning with the Sun Cluster 3.2 release, Sun Cluster software includes an object-oriented command set. Although Sun Cluster software still supports the original command set, Sun Cluster procedural documentation uses only the object-oriented command set. For more infor- mation about the object-oriented command set, see the Intro(1CL) man page. You can configure bge adapters as cluster transport adapters. These adapters can only be used with the dlpi transport type. The bge adapter is VLAN capable. The bge adapter connects to a transport switch or to another bge adapter on a different node. In either case, the connection is made through a transport cable. When a transport switch is used and the endpoints of the transport cable are configured by using the scconf command, the scinstall command, or other tools, you are asked to specify a port name on the transport switch. You can provide any port name, or accept the default, as long as the name is unique for the switch. The default is to set the port name to the node ID hosting the adapter at the other end of the cable. There are no user configurable properties for cluster transport adapters of this type. SEE ALSO
