EVA 8000 and AIX

Does anyone have any experience or cautions they can share regarding the use of an EVA8000 with AIX servers? In particular I'm concerned about support for multi-pathing. We'd like to use either the AIX native drivers or a cross-platform standard like Veritas DMP. I single out AIX because it has a history of being less compatible with anyone's SAN arrays than other O/S's. Other O/S's in our shop and potentially connected to EVAs are Solaris, HP-UX, and Windows 200X. Any advice or concerns would be greatly appreciated, so we go into an EVA8000 evaluation with our eyes wide open. Thanks.

Ray,
while I can't share any experience with AIX, I'd like to present a pointer to a document which might be useful in case that is new to you:
