ON A DELL 2950 SERVER: what software is use to manage the RAID controller?

Hi,
I have a Dell 2950 poweredge server with an sas array on it but there is no software installed in the Windows 2008 R2 OS to manage/see the condition of the arrawy...
I looked at Dell Open Manage that I have on anoter older system and it is not compatible with this one.
I my section DOWNLOAD under Dell, I see drivers for the sas control, firmware and such but no "managing" software...
What would it be
Tx!
