It is recommended to create Raid at the hardware level.  Does your server have a Raid card installed.  If there is no Raid card and you want to use Raid then you use Windows Disk Manager to create your Raid.

Yes, I have.

I remember I had seen disk manager tool on  Dell. It should have its own tool to configure the RAID, but I can't remember its name

Dell OpenManage Server Administrator is what I think you're referring to.

Note: if you try and configure hardware RAID after the OS has been installed then it will wipe your disks!  You'll have to do a restore.
