How do I check SQL Server (Windows 2003)'s hardware configuration?

Are there t-sql commands to check that?

If not, where in the server can I go to understand what kind of SAN, RAID we have on the server.

Thanks.

1) Right click Computer and select Properties. If the properties window appear click on Device Manager.
2) Execute Sysinfo32.EXE

Device Manager needs admin rights. Sysinfo32 is not necessarily present on each computer.

The t-sql command for device listing is not a standard but you could call .NET assembly as user defined function directly from SQL 2005/2008. The hardware enumeration is a standard Windows API call.

Some example is e.g. here: http://www.developer.com/net/csharp/article.php/3399881 and here: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/system/DevMgr.aspx
