Yes, this is normal. The hardware RAID controller is presenting a
single block device to Windows Logical Disk Manager.
There should be at least a minimalist RAID management and / or
monitoring utility. Check the RAID card vendor's web site. It looks
like you have a MegaRAID from LSI. I personally have used many LSI
cards and all of them have had a management / monitoring utility for
Grant. . . .
