HP9000 Model 715

Hi All

Looking to get standard PS2 Keyboard and mouse working on our servers HP9000 / 715 

We have the right adaptor box  HIL to HP9000 and two marked up P2 ports for Key and Mouse 

But server will not see them ?? OS is HP-UX 9.

 

Help Please

Re: HP9000 Model 715

Not sure what its doing but here are some things:

HP-UX workstation are finicky with keyboards.. Its best to use the most basic versions, HP brand preferably. The recommended PS2 keyboard for the 715/100 715/80 715/64 are the C3757-60201. there is a link to ebay below. On the mouse, you can use any basic 2 or 3 button mouse but no scrolling wheel.. HP-UX 9.05 has no idea what that is and will freak it out.

If you have everything plugged in correctly and you are not getting any video display after your boot process

Turn the computer off. Make sure the video, keyboard, & mouse cables are all connected. Turn it on, once you get a beep or see anything (flash or rectangle) on the screen hit the tab key for about a minute or until you get video. There are three frequency settings so cycle through them by hitting the tab key until you get a display. Basically, when you turn it on and the light on the keyboard lights up, thats when you start hitting the TAB key. You don't have to press it fast, just once every half second.

If this does not help, let me know what its doing and I can let you know what to do... More info is needed though.

Thanks

Hi Jesse

The servers are ABB configured for a SCADA system... But the supplied keyboards are getting tired etc.

We figured as the box has PS2 Connections we could use any standard PS2  keyboard / mouse.

So we "have" to use HP Keyboards ?

The HP9000 Should see any mouse ?

At moment no mouse movment on screen 

Thank you for reply 

Andy

Re: HP9000 Model 715

I don't know what a SCADA system is but if you are using it as an Advant Station with an PU512 or PU513 RTA card, you need to use HP-UX 10.20 OS.

you could always just snip the part number off the supplied keyboards and just search for them. Some other keyboard and mice work and some dont, we have been doing these boxes for 25 years and there is no pattern that we have found that works. Its always trial and error to see if other than HP (and different versions of HP) keyboard and mice work. Again on the mouse, its trial and error... If I were you, I would just get the A2839B, I kinked an ebay below

Also, ABB sometimes modifies HP stuff so they might have taken an HP input device and tweaked it to do what they want it to do.
