How do I reset the keyboard and mouse (PS2) without rebooting
Posted on 2011-03-17
Recently we replaced our KVM
As a result the PS2 ports on some servers are not working with the keyboard and mouse.
We have isolated the problem and it is not caused by the KVM, hardware or the cables.
We cannot get the server to respond to the keyboard or mouse plugged directly.
I know that its likely the keyboard and mouse will work if we could restart the server. However we do not have this option available during the next 12 hours.
We need to get the keyboard and mouse working urgently (without reboot) using a command or tool that refreshes the PS2 ports.
Is there a dos command or software tool we can run to refresh the PS2 ports?
We can connect to the machine using remote desktop.
