Are there any useful software tools to help identify potential issues in the hardware layer of your server? I.e. produce you a report of issues/risks/disasters waiting to happen in the hardware tier/undesirable settings?

How many ProLiant servers have you got? IF there are lots then you should setup Insight Manager to monitor them, if only a few then you can configure the HP Event Notifier service to send you emails when disks or redundant PSUs fail.
