rp3440 with KVM support

Hi all,

I have 2xrp3440. I want to use KVM to display both servers but can not. KVM is working fine. I have one graphics card in each and USB kvm adapter but getting no display. What else do I need? Can anyone help me?

Rgds,
Rana

Re: rp3440 with KVM support

Shalom,

I have read/heard that KVM is no supported with these servers, that a real monitor,keyboard and mouse is required.

This question has been asked, but the questions are always transferred to server/hardware forum.

Re: rp3440 with KVM support

HP9000 rp3440 model is not support VGA card.
If you want to use KVM switch, you have to add
A6150B(PCI 2D Graphics and 2 port USB Adptrs) product.

When you add VGA card, you have to set graphic.
Graphic setting method is as follows.

The setmon utility (/opt/graphics/common/bin/setmon) can be used to change the resolution/refresh settings of the monitor attached to a Visualize-FXe graphics options board (Product Number: A6150A). However, setmon cannot save this information to stable storage; therefore, the setting is not retained after the system is rebooted.

A simple script (as detailed below) can be introduced into the CDE start-up sequence to automatically change the monitor settings after each reboot.

To implement this script:

Use the setmon utility to change the monitor type of the system.

/opt/graphics/common/bin/setmon

NOTE: When doing this, note the index value selected and choose NOT to save the changes to stable storage.

Create a /etc/rc.config.d/monitor file with the following contents:

#
# setmon is not able to update stable storage on rp[25]400/[AL]-class servers
#

# Run "setmon -r" to determine the index "s" value and
# update accordingly

SETMON_ARGS="-s 2"



Create a /usr/dt/config/dtrc.d/22_display file with the following contents:

# !/usr/bin/ksh

#
# NAME: /usr/dt/config/dtrc.d/22_display (chmod 544)
# PURPOSE: Monitor type cannot be retained on rp[25]400/[AL]-class servers
# PRE: Requires /etc/rc.config.d/monitor file:
# ex: SETMON_ARGS="-s 2"
#

SETMON_CONFIG=/etc/rc.config.d/monitor
SETMON=/opt/graphics/common/bin/setmon

if [ -f $SETMON_CONFIG ] ; then
. $SETMON_CONFIG
fi

if [ "$SETMON_ARGS" != "" -a -x $SETMON ]; then
$SETMON -t $SETMON_ARGS
fi



Set the permissions on this /usr/dt/config/dtrc.d/22_display file to 744 (-rwxr--r--):

chmod 744 /usr/dt/config/dtrc.d/22_display
