Select your RAID array. Under Partition you select Software RAID - gmirror, and under File system you choose UFS. Also specify a share name and a description:

After you've applied the changes the RAID array should be available as a NAS share:

To check the status of your RAID array, you can go to Disks -> Software RAID and click on the Information tab:
