USB-C docks compatibility with Surface

Hi,

does anyone know about compatibility issues of USB-C docks with surface devices? At work we have Dell USB-C docks on every desk connected to monitor, mouse, keyboard and LAN. They work perfectly with Dell laptops (obviously) but also with any Lenovo and HP laptop I tried. When I connect my surface book 2, it’s just dead. Nothing works, the laptop continues to operate as only the internal monitor is connected. I don’t see any of the devices attached to the dock. Is this a known compatibility issue for the SB2? Is there any workaround besides using the surface dock?

Thank you,

Vladimir
