Re: Configuring the new HP KVM IP consoles

Hi,

Can I hijack this thread just a little bit? We have 2 of these switches. (0x2x16) so not remote ip conectivity. (That's what we could afford at the time) However can get a 2x1x16 then tier the 2 0x2x16s off it and be able to access all the ports (Including the downstream tiered ports) via the remote IP console? I ask because we about to buy one more 16 port cat5 kvm. I'm guessing this won't work.(Too good to be true?)! :-)

Cheers,
Rhys

Rhys,

we got a 2*1*16 (prodnr: AF601A) and hooked up the console port of a old 1*4 style switch (with those thick keyb/mouse/video cables type of switch) and can quit happily manage all cascaded ports from within the IP KVM, so yes you can do that.

Check here:

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12464_div/12464_div.html

Their is a section on cascading

"HP IP Console Switches with Virtual Media should be placed at the top and tiered to up to 16 Server Console Switches with Virtual Media or any Cat5 based HP Server Console Switch for a maximum of 256 servers in the cascade"
