kvm switch print screen key
Posted on 2004-09-15
I have several UnixWare boxes and a SUN Solaris box sharing a Compaq KVM switch. A standard PC keyboard, mouse, and monitor are used as the interface. The SUN box has an adaptor to feed from it's keyboard/mouse port into the KVM. The KVM utilizes the 'print screen' key to bring up the system menu at which point I can choose which system to interface to. The problem is when I interface to the SUN box, the print screen key doesn't seem to trigger the KVM switch, and so I can't activate the KVM menu. It seems to be that Solaris doesn't properly map or recognize the print-screen key on the standard PC keyboard. Any suggestions are welcome.
