You have to create the raid at harware level.  When installing windows you have to make sure you press F6 to add additional drivers for raid.

Unless it's a HP server with Smartstart, or a Dell server with similar build software, if you use this, it will configure this for you and install all required extra applications and management tools.

I did assume they weren't usually those servers come with proper documentation and cd's to load the server os.

Are you even using a hardware RAID?

If you are using Windows Software RAID (not as fast, here is a guide to using it.

And yea, the recovery is different depending on what type of RAID1 it is, whether hardware or software.  The top and bottom of it is though, set up an alert when you have a failed disk, replace the disk and rebuild the redundancy back into the mirrored array.
