I don't consider there to be much to know differently from an HP server, vs a dell server.  The main thing is probably most critical in the setup of the server.  HP's use smartstart CD's during setup which basically walk you through the OS install and add all the HP tools and drivers the system needs.

Other than that, managing an OS is managing an OS.  HP has a few tools installed that deal mostly wtih the array controllers out of the box.  But, whatever software the company uses to manage their server farms are all depends on them.  It could be HP Openview, it could be servers alive, or another snmp tool.
