DisplayPort technology is used to connect a video source to a display device, such as a computer monitor or laptop. This is accomplished by adding an adapter to the DisplayPort cable. On an HPE ProLiant ML10 Gen9 server with DisplayPort 1.2, the video output will not be displayed if a dongle adapter cable is used to transfer the DisplayPort to the VGA source.

The DisplayPort design for DisplayPort 1.2 requires an “active” dongle adapter cable to transfer video output.


Any HPE ProLiant ML10 Gen9 with DisplayPort design for DisplayPort 1.2 and with other server video output.


Use an active dongle converter cable on HPE ProLiant ML10 G9 servers with DisplayPort 1.2

Refer to the following list for acceptable active dongle cables:
