Which channel did you connect to the server?
The XServe RAID is essentially split into two separate halves, each of 7 drive bays.
Each half is connected to one fiber channel port.
Given the limited data, I'd guess that you configured the RAID on one side, but connected the other fiber channel port.
If that's not the case, please add more detail of your configuration.

To test both controllers i already split the drivers over both controllers. The connection goes Mac pro -> picolight -> fiber cable -> picolight -> xserve raid. If you need more information please let me know.

Well, the first place I'd look is the SFPs. Are you sure the Picolights are compatible?
Is there a reason you're using these SFPs and a fiber cable rather than the copper cable that ships with the Apple card? It's not to say that the fiber option isn't suitable, just that it's a place to look.

The Picolights are compatible, the original copper SFP cable isn't. When using this cable the Fibre Channel prefpane shows an orange light (cable not supported). As shown by this support pages of Apple this original copper cable isn't recommended.
