I have an iLO blade enclosure with a few blades in it.

Is there anyway to plug a monitor directly into a blade? keyboard and mouse would also be required.

If you use HP blades, then there is a special cable with VGA, USB and Serial port. Throw this cable you can connect your KVM directly to your blade.

they are HP, what is the name of this cable? – sorry doctor of pink Jul 15 '11 at 7:11
For completeness sake, it's the same with the Dells. There's a dongle that plugs into the front of each blade if you don't want to use the chassis KVM. – Mark Henderson Jul 15 '11 at 8:51

The name of the cable is "HP c-Class Blade SUV(Serial, USB, VGA) Cable" if you have blade of c-Class (for example c7000 or c3000).
