My experience is from HP Proliant DL360 G6, but it shouldn't me much different 
in this regard. There is probably several issues.

At first there is always at least one keyboard and mouse in HP servers - 
virtual ones from ILO management and these attach as USB ones to the system.  
We don't have a keyboard muxing and therefore can't make sure that real ones 
even work. The second issue is probably that even PS/2 controller isn't the 
real one, but emulated. See this commit to the OpenBSD:


We need to port kbdmux(4) from FreeBSD and remove our keyboard priority hacks 
at first and then look how we can solve the second issue.
