What model Sparc?  IIRC at one time they used a  proprietary interface and you had to get KVM's that were specific to Sparcs.

When you connect the keyboard directly  to the Sparc, is it a normal USB PC Keyboard?

It looks like that model uses a special Sparc Keyboard which will not work on a normal PC KVM.
Depending on which KVM, you may have to get as pointed out, a sun specific connector for the KVM.
Using the Serial/console (Rj45) port
