No, that's the way to do it.

There are issues with RAID controllers and the way they store
the config data. Some store it in the controller, some in some
proprietary way on the disks involved. Most of the time, the
config data is non-interchangeable between different manufacturers
and sometime even between the same manufacturer and different models.

It's a mess.
