Network KVM not Working

Hi,

I am getting a message from the screen saying that: "WARNING: PC entering Power save Mode: RED, GREEN, BLUE"

Is it talking about the Remote side PC? Did maybe the network card go to sleep? go into low power mode?

If the network card goes to sleep might I suggest unchecking the sleep mode check box in the network card properties in device manager?

Sounds kind of rough but not a lot to go on.

I have avocent switchview 1000 8 port. it has been working ok for over a year. On monday I found that 4 computers are not displaying 2 windows 2003 server, 1 windows 2008 and 1 xp. I have tried switching...


What resolution are you using? And if you place the Avocent KVM cable to a different port, do you get a signal? If you use a Known good cable do you get a KVM session with good video?

Reboot of linux server hangs


It should not be the cause of problem, kvm switch is an intelligent device. Turn off the device, unplug the wires do not unplug them for a minute or so, plug them in and turn it on. It should work if not call the customer support.

The KVM is unresponsive, meaning the buttons are no longer operating the way they should to go from one server to the otehr no reaction.


try tapping scroll lock twice then arrow keys. sometimes you need to start the server/computer with the kvm plugged in to get the computer to "recogize" the KVM is there. otherwise it looks for other devices Always start the computer with KVM on the respective channel. Then use it to switch. Cheers.

We have just installed 2 x new HP KVM switches (main port 16 connects to A port on secondary switch) with HP TFT7600 rack mount monitor and keyboard. Issue is we cannot connect to Servers on secondary...


Try swapping the switches over, your second switch box may be faulty.

You could also check the ips to make sure u have no conflicts.

post back what you find. thanks

AP5201 KVM was working; after power down, moving rack, setting up again -- no keyboard action. Got the right plugs in the right ports. Powered down as the manual says and powered back up. Tried different...


If other keyboards and mice won't work, it sounds like your KVM bought the farm. Does it have any power lights that come on? is it plugged into a live outlet? Are they PS2 ports or USB? PS2 ports don't like power surges. Is the device plugged into a UPS? Does the UPS have power or is is tripped? In a server room?

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?
