ESX does not support (as of ESX 3.5) attaching of Fibre Channel libraries. Few succeeded in attaching such library but never multi-lun one (which all IBM TS3xxx are - you have one LUN for changer and another for Drive0 on one SCSI ID).
"In addition, it is not possible to connect a Fibre Channel device directly to a virtual machine."
