The only way I know is to go into the BIOS of the disk controller on the SAN box.  It should indicate the current strip size.  Of course you have to restart the machine to do this.

I am not sure who the manufacturer of your disk controller is but for example there are certain versions of Adaptec Storage Manager that will allow you to view the stripe size.

when you say 'disk controller on the SAN box', are you meaning the  Windows Server 2003 box?
