I have 16 servers, 14 have ps2 keyboard and mouse ports and two now have only usb ports for keyboards and mice.  My current dlink dkvm-8e  KVM units keep freezing now that I have connected to the new servers via a usb to ps2 keyboard/mouse adapter.  Dlink says they don't support usb-ps2 key/mouse adapters.  I need to find a KVM switch that is reasonably priced that can handle both usb and ps2 input devices.  This is frustrating as I have checked APC, Belkins and some others which have usb ports on them but none that can duplicate mouse and keyboard compatibilityvia the usb
