Question about Dakota Scout KVM Switch

Dakota Scout kvm

I have a Dakota Scout 4 port kvm switch, model 1016-04. It must be 7-8 years old. I am wondering if there are some hot key sequences that I can use to switch between connected PC's, rather than use the select button on the front of the unit? Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Try CTRL CTRL A and enter or CTRL CTRL B and enter. THE CTRL CTRL activates the keyboard command sequence and A or B is the required port. Hope that helps.

Hi,

So you still have the same problem???

Twice CTRL - LED flashes (A)
Hit A,B,C or D (Port select)
Hit Enter

RESET: Disconnect ALL cables from "Dakota", Shut all PC's down, reconnect all cables & Fire them all up again ;)

Kind Regards,
Dan, Denmark

I am looking for the hotkey combination for our HP 336044-b21 KVM switch from a iogear KVM?


IOGEAR KVM switches uses Scroll Lock for the hot key. The models of IOGEAR KVM switches starts the letters "GCS". I don't think that your HP 336044-b21 came from IOGEAR.

Anyway, if that's an IOGEAR KVM switch, you may quickly press Scroll Lock twice + Enter (for two port KVM).

Scroll Lock twice + port # + Enter (for 4 port, or 8 port KVM).

NOTE: You need to verify the brand of your KVM switch by referring to the user manual of it.

Thank you and good luck!

KVM Switch 4110 8 port


so is the KVM (control side, PS2 mouse / kbd>??)
or are all PS2 ports wired to adaptors,? i cant guess this nor what was used before, no history stated.
what was there before, this act?
and what now?
Ill assume worse cases (tossed a coin)
18 (16+2) adapters now. all devices are USB but KVM
ok.?


what mode fails, both the KVM pushbotton switch and or the hot key commands on the kbd?
Oops no manual button as seen on modern KVM.

KVMs are very complex. the hard part is the vast number of different PC.
USB , PS2, VGA, DVI and HDMI.. yah,..
OK 16 +2=18 x ps2, and 9 VGA ports. it is.
NO KVM does it all, ,, old KVM' do NOT work , on new computers, all folks know this , if they tried. or took readings to learn why it fails.
I bet power to the KVM is dead., no LED./
no manual button ,oops.
pin 4 PS2 reads 5vdc and connected up, same?
we use breakout boxes (DIY) to test ports connected.'

that Compaq is very old and no support now, no books.
why not ask at real HP, maybe some old guy there can dig it lost books>
40 KVM? that what you said, really? (or 40/8=5 kvm)?
my guess is the adaptor does not work or power issues
KVM >>PS2>>>ADapt>>> USB.(server) (usb 1,2,or 3 at server?)
The KVM in most cases, here, steals power from PS2 ports but not this KVM , its better.
i'd bet that adaptor cant do that.
(is the caps lock key working on the KBD and laser LED glowing on said mouse?

ask here, real HP.
lets see tests:
1: pin 4 ps2 5vdc?
2: mouse glows?
3: keyboard led , caps lock toggles? (glows)
4: lost the hot key commands (y/n)

one other problem is the BIOS in the server may not like your adaptor at all. When BIOS scans the keyboard. it expects a ID response if missing or grabled, it drops that device port.


https://h30434.www3.hp.com/


btw, one way to cure this, is run headless server software
end KVM for ever.

i run a LAMP server, that comes in the box, no kvm no any thing on ports. it has a web page to go to and do service that way.
port IP+:12321
modern ways work best.
in a server farm, a keyboard/mouse/monitor on rolling cart
for the super sick servers is best...

the other problem is USB only PC or server
does not scan PS2 ports, it has none
so if the adaption fails, at boot time, all is lost.
(BIOS reports connected devices to the OS)(unstated by you)so if the report fails, problems happen
for sure after the boot.

this device is s business device, now ("Enterprise)
the posts on it are like 10 years ago. all links to books now dead.
infact the compaq server that had them is turned off. (grin)
here is my search there. Why not ask them?
