How can I know what RAID configured on my machine?

I am not the one installed the box at the begining, how can I know what RAID configured on my machine? My box is IBM with Redhat ES3 on it. Is there an utility that I can run to check it when the machine running?

Does your server have a ServeRAID card in it? if so, you can grab the latest ServeRAID Manager CD, boot up with it and check your drives to see if they are in a RAID configuration.

If you are not sure if you have a ServeRAID controller or some other RAID card, you should be able to watch the POST messages as the server boots up. One of them should indicate something about RAID and perhaps even give you some options to enter a bios setup utility for the card.
