Will DBAN scrub all disks on a server with a RAID configuration?

I have never tried it, but It probably will. There is another DBAN forum on SourceForge; you may get a better answer there.

I am not an Eraser programmer, but a long-time user; my views may not be the same as those of the Eraser programming team.
Before posting, please read the top 4 topics in the Eraser FAQ, which already provide many of the answers users need.

It depends. If it's hardware raid then DBAN will only see one drive and wipe it without any problems

if it's software raid it gets tricky because when you boot from DBAN CD, the OS where the software raid is installed does not start - therefor I don't know how DBAN will see your disks.

My advice, if you have hardware raid do it because you won't have problems - if not than wipe each hard drive individually for 100% guaranteed that you done it right.
