Reusing KVM cables from HP DL Proliant g5 and g6 for g8 servers HEADS UP

In case that you are considering buying HP Proliant Gen 8 servers without KVM cables because you have KVM cables from HP Proliant Gen5 and Gen6, here's small but useful tip.

In case that you don't know Gen8 servers don't have PS/2 port for mouse and keyboard. Because KVM cables for older HP server generation have 1 VGA and 2 PS/S port they cannot be connected to Gen8 server because they only have USB ports for mouse and keyboard.

Why this is important? Price of one VGA+USB cable is 99$
