    How to tell if there is a hardware failure on a server?

    I have a server unused for 1 year now, HP DL380 G3, RAID 5, 4X72GB HDD. I have loaded cpanel + centos on it. I have given it an IP and have left it on the DC without using it. Now it must be probably hacked.
    The problem:
    The DC guys have moved it many times, turned it on and off. So I want to know if they have caused it a hardware failure.
    Do you know of any linux commands that I should run at the command prompt to find out?
    Should I take a Centos disk when I go to the DC to reboot from there?

    It should be ok though you might want to check the RAID and maybe run memtest on it. Check dmesg to see if it reports anything strange before rebooting it but a full OS load then a bit of stress testing shoudl see if there are any week parts
