The link in your post does not work.

Latest HCL for Linux can be found here: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH211575 

When I look at IBM Flex on the IBM web site, it does not seem to be a Raid Array. Right?
This means you will not find in an HCL for Raid Arrays.

Correct.

Servers/machines are not listed in HCL. 
Arrays are.

Please mark Mike's post as solution.

Furthermore We only need to see the ARRAY in HCL (no need to see HBA/CPU model/etc) ?

No. As far as harware compatibility, the server does not play are role.
For software compatibility, only the OS on the machine/server plays a role.

Server make/model and cpu count plays a role as far as licensing is concerned.

says:

This paper demonstrates how the new IBM PureFlex System, using the IBM Storwize V7000 Unified external storage for block storage and Symantec Veritas Storage Foundation 6.0, results in enhanced storage-volume management.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PureSystems, says IBM PureFlex is a combination of server, network and storage, so you need to look at the storage component inside, so this URL as with the other URL says it contains IBM Storwize V7000 Disk System and this is on the Symantec HCL.

The Linux 6.1 HCL does not list servers, it lists processor architecture, so you will not find IBM Flex - it lists "Intel EM64T architecture"

Yes this is an Intel chip, but pretty much all main processes are supported, so as Marianne says, it is the array that you need to lookup support for, not the server.
