Hi Technical Gurus ,

I need your worthy advice and guidance . Actually we are building our data center and for server virtualization , I need expert suggestion . Either we should go for KVM or VMWARE . As of course , KVM is an open source , the management would prefer to go with KVM to reduce the cost but  I need solid reasons if I refuse to go with KVM and instead opt for VMWARE . In any case I need you guys expert opinion to choose either one for our data center servers virtualization .  The brief summary of our network requirement is that we need 150 cores and 350 GB RAM ,,, we plan to purchase 6 servers with 28 cores each and plus six more for high availability. I need your worthy guidance regarding the selection for virtualization.

Best Regards

I need an inexpensive KVM that supports three (3) display ports.

I can't seem to find anything under $100 that supports the DisplayPort (dp v1.2 or 2) and does this all in one device.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

This product works and I have it but it needs to support the third computer.  It only supports two.

Hi,
I'm in the process of migrating from an old Win10 computer to a new one, also Win10. For a period of time I plan to have both computers active to facilitate transferring files, applicatons, whatnot. I have one keyboard, mouse monitor.

I'd rather not have to constantly be swapping out the cables for these peripherals.. I'm looking at a KVM switch where I can simply hook everything up. And then flip a witch so that the same keyboard, mouse, monitor will now be connected to the 2nd computer.

Does the product below seem appropriate for my needs? Can you think of any stumbling blocks that I might encounter?

What is the process needed to get the AWS KVM and ZEN drivers loaded in a VMWare Ubuntu 18.04 LTS System before we use the AWS migration tool to put in on an AWS Instance ?  I’m specifically needing what and how to preload the drtivers etc.

We have a pool of IP KVMs that is shared between non-critical Development Windows servers
& critical production payment systems:  as the IP KVMs don't allow files upload/download
(the KVM is just like vCenter's console to its Windows guest clients), is this considered a risk?

Access to the IP KVMs are via a couple of controlled PCs housed in a physically secure room though.

I don't have the model/brand of the IP KVM currently but can enquire tomorrow.

Hello,

I recently purchased an Aten KVM cs84u switch and just installed two pcs.

The first one is command line linux and works.
The second pc is Windows 10 and behaved well for about a week.

After that i installed a third one (Windows 10 also) and after the initial booting to Windows i faced the "D-SUB OUT OF RANGE 91.2 Khz /85 Hz" message.

But now the same happens on the second pc which originally worked well

Can anyone help me?

Hello Experts, to satisfy the NIST 800-171 requirement for Dual Authentication for privileged accounts we have a way to do this, but we must disable Local Policy to prevent local logons.  The solution we're toying with now is using our KVM to connect remotely.  Only concern if for what ever reason the KVM fails & we have disabled local logons, how would we get past this?

We're running Server 2008 R2 environment.

Hello Experts, I've just started a new job they currently have an Avocent DSR1021 KVM Switch in the server room.  I'm drawing a blank on how to toggle between displays.  I'm used to tapping "Scroll Lock" "Scroll Lock" then either up arrow / down arrow.

ATEN / Arrow Electronics Case Study
Arrow Electronics was searching for a KVM (Keyboard/Video/Mouse) switch that could display on one single monitor the current status of all units being tested on the rack.

I have a KVM switch for the monitor, keyboard and mouse and it also has audio connections. The two audio wires from the switch have the green connectors, one to each system.

My speakers have another wire which is a USB power cord.

The KVM solves the two green speaker wires.
How to solve the need to connect the USB power cord (speaker power cord) ?

What amount of power is feeding the speakers from the pc?
Small current such that a Y connector could be used?

This location has two separate networks, one for office work, and the other network is a Point of Sale system.
They would like a computer from each network to share a USB printer.

Is there a smart USB switch that would enable this?

Thanks.

Our VRTx Chassis won't load the CMC right from startup.Spins for about 5 minutes here
After about 5 minutes it times out and says "CMC not responding" on the little LCD screen. CMC not responding
Once it gets to the not responding point, Pushing the power button on the chassis or any of the blade servers inside does nothing (naturally).Front of vrtx when "CMC not responding is on the LCD"
When consulting the VRTx diagnostics document (http://en.community.dell.com/cfs-file/__key/communityserver-discussions-components-files/177/VRTX-Diagnostics_5B00_1_5D00_.pdf) I found that "When CMC is active and running, and there are no
problems, the bottom LED is blue." Which it is as you can see in the picture: CMC card light codes. Solid green and blue.

I have scoured the internet with no luck on this issue. Since we bought this off eBay a while ago it doesn't have any support. Dell said it was a refurbished unit and they can't help me. So I'm here posting this!

Another thing I tried was also from the troubleshooting doc was to recover the firmware. When connecting to the com port in the back of the vrtx chassis, It doesn't seem to want to connect to putty at all. I may have not done that part correctly but as it is, the chassis doesn't have an IP address so the com port seems to be the only way to get in if that was possible.

Help is greatly appreciated at this point. Thanks in advance!

I have a number of Dell R710s. I have a really annoying behaviour which is when one of them boots it is hanging. They are all connected to an ATEN KVM which I swapped thinking it was my old KVM causing the issue. The hang is clearly being caused by the USB cable from the KVM being plugged in at the time of boot.
I have so far:
- Change the KVM cable
- Change the port the cable is plugged into on the KVM
- Updated the BIOS
- I think I have updated all the firmware’s (e.g. DRAC, etc.).
- Been through the BIOS on one of the working R710 and the hanging R710 and cannot see any obvious configuration differences.

Only difference I have been able to identify is all of the working R710s have a PERC6i raid controllers and the hanging one has a H700.

Has anybody seen this before or have any ideas?

Thanks

Dear All
The ratio of vertical and horizontal is not correct, which shows short and flat pictures and words in my second monitor of windows 7. After I tried all resolutions for it, it still does not work well. Any expert can give some suggestion ? Thanks

From everything I have read about IP KVM it seems it is basically a computer with some specialized hardware/built-in software - all blackboxed.  Would I not be able to make my own IP KVM with a laptop and some special adapters and some software on the laptop? I am agnostic as to whether it would be Windows or Linux that I would accomplish this with. I am also indifferent between wired or wireless if that is a possibility.

I have 3 separate computers and I would like to control them from 1 keyboard/mouse. (SEE DIAGRAM)

Qustion1: Please recommend a KVM switch using a usb cabled setup where the KB/Mouse are using a usb to connect to the switch.

Question2: Please recommend a switch using a wireless setup where the KB/Mouse are wirelessly (not even sure this is a word - LOL) connected to the switch.

I prefer the wireless setup.KVM-Switch-Needed.ppt

Thanks

Hi experts!

I need to use a software similar to speedfan. Speedfan does its job, but occasionally produces weird results. Whatever you recommend should be personally tested on Windows 8.1 x64. It's only for controlling ASUS Mainboards CPU fans, by the way. The ASUS Software does not run on 8.1

When attempting to flash a Belkin KVM Omni view F1DA108T using a system running Windows 7, I receive an error message stating that “windows NT port direct access not found!!!”

Can this be done using windows 7 or does this need to be done on an older system?  The device manual indicates that the computer needs to be running ME or XP.
