I currently use alot of 19" rackservers for a project and only have 1 monitor for all. Everything works fine when u reboot a server with the monitor and keyboard/mouse connected but without them u can't do anything locally on the machine after a reboot and everything has to be done remotely.
I only have a blank screen and no working keyboard/mouse.
Now linux does work when I give the servers a reboot and after that connect a monitor mouse and keyboard to it.
Is this a security feature Microsoft build in that I can disable or is there no other option then to reboot with everything connected?
