Cascading HP Console switch.

Hi,
We have a requirement for an IP KVM and have identified the HP IP Console Switch G2 part number AF621A.
My question is, can one of our existing switches (AF617A - HP Console switch) be cascaded from this?

Thanks

Re: Cascading HP Console switch.

HI,

YES, this is very much supported.

The HP IP Console Switch G2 with Virtual Media & CAC is backwards compatible with all HP Cat5 based Server Console Switches
and interface adapters that do not support virtual media.

Server Console switches can be cascaded with IP console switches. Please refer to Cascaded Configurations in IP Console switch quickspecs
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13474_div/13474_div.pdf

Hope this helps,

please don't forget to assign points if information provided resolves your query :)

thanks,
Aftab
