Here is the answer from the DRA product team:

Yes.

Data collection from SYMCLI through a UNIX proxy:

DRA uses the standard SYMAPI interface and read-only SYMCLI commands to collect additional data from EMC Symmetrix arrays. The commands are run on one or more UNIX servers in the IT environment. Collectively, these servers can query all Symmetrix arrays in the scope.

Data collection from NaviCLI through a UNIX proxy:

DRA uses read-only NaviSECCLI commands to collect additional data from EMC CLARiiON arrays. These commands run on one or more UNIX servers in the IT environment. Collectively, these servers can query all CLARiiON arrays in the scope.

Data collection from DSCLI through a UNIX proxy:

DRA uses read-only DSCLI commands to collect additional data from IBM DS arrays. These commands run on one or more UNIX servers in the IT environment. Collectively, these servers can query all DS arrays in the scope.

Data collection from XCLI through a UNIX proxy:

DRA uses read-only XCLI commands to collect additional data from IBM XIV arrays. These commands run on one or more UNIX servers in the IT environment. Collectively, these servers can query all XIV arrays in the scope.
