Unable to create team with Brocade 1020

Am running Windows 2008 x64 SP2 and have added a new Brocade 1020 card. No issues have been encountered with the Ethernet or FC side, but when I try and create a team in HCM I receive an error that the Intermediate Driver is not installed. I'm running the 3.0.0 drivers and have also tried using the 2.3 drivers. I'm having this issues on two machines (Dell R610's).

Log files show nothing out of the ordinary:


Brocade Adapter Software installation completed.

Driver components status:
1. HBA Driver installation
a. No Adapter found for given driver package
2. CNA Driver installation
a. FCoE/BNA drivers: Driver has been successfully installed.
b. IM driver: Driver has been successfully installed.

Driver location:

Driver installation log location:

VLAN/Team configuration save: SUCCESSFUL

BCU installation: SUCCESSFUL

HCM Agent installation: SUCCESSFUL

HCM Agent Service: Stopped

Uninstaller location:
C:\Program Files\BROCADE\Adapter\UninstallBrocade Adapter Software\

Installation status log location:

Press "Done" to finish the installation.

But yet HCM says the IM driver isn't installed:


I've attached the full log to this post as well.

Any ideas? I've got this same problem on two machines, both running Win2008 x64 with latest Windows updates and nothing else.

Have also tried this on a Windows 2008 R2 server and have the same results.
