Is it possible to find the RAID config from Windows level?

I mean for each of the drive in a cluster or stand alone server, can we find RAID from disk mgmt or any other place within windows.

Please advise

i don't think it is possible to identify RAID config in windows unless you have installed vendor software on it

If the RAID was set up within Windows (software RAID), you can see it from disk management. If it was set up elsewhere, then you have to go and look at where it was set up (BIOS, SAN software, etc)
