Disable keyboard during boot up Debian Linux computer
Posted on 2014-03-07
Since I want to have more servers in my work area and it is not neccessary to have
one keyboard for each sever, I would like to disable or disconnect cable of keyboard in order to avoid F1 keyboard error during rebooting server for maintenance or other system issue.
Is it possible to achieve this for Debian Linux computer for disconnecting the keyboard cable and run the boot successfully ?
I tried to disable keyboard on the console-setup file at /etc/default/ on linux terminal
and run "update-grub" cmd, and reboot it , but it fail for what I need, and it just disable the keyboard input on the console only.
In other words, there is still F1 keyborad error during rebooting when I disconnect the cable of keyboard of the computer.
I have changed some setting on BIOS setup to avoid F1 keyboard error, but all is failed.
Do you think the F1 keyboard error is caused by BIOS or linux system when I disconnect the keyboard cable during booting.
Could I reboot all my servers through network or internet ? How to achieve this that
may help me not to solve question-1 above
