HP will support non HP arrays but they are not mentioning which ones. You need to specify it in your support contract.

Look in the quickspecs

http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13333_div/13333_div.html#SAN%20/%20Array%20Compatibility

The X3400 looks like a DL360 with Win2008 storage server. They should work with the DS5020 with the right MPIO driver installed.

Look at the IBM compatibility document for the DS5020, page 27 for windows support with MPIO
