DL380 G3 and NetWare 6.5 setup - mouse problems!

Hi all!

Today I got a very strange problem. When I install a NetWare 6.5 onto DL380G3 server my mouse isn't working (when install program switches to the GUI)!
But mouse works normally when I booting this server from SmartStart 6.30 CD (to configure RAID or something else).
Moreover, yesterday I installed NW6.5 onto this server (at the first time, today - is the second attempt) and mouse worked properly.

My server is connected to keyboard/mouse/monitor via ATEN MasterView PRO CS1008 KVM switchbox.
May be a problem in the KVM switch? But, why mouse works normally in the SmartStart environment through the same KVM switch?

Hello Alex,
Just make sure that the system BIOS is uptodate. It could be that you need to update the firmware of your ATEN KVM. I am not sure just place in a call with the manufacturer.

Hi!

My servers already has a newest firmware for all components (BIOS, RAID, iLO).
I will try to contact with ATEN for new firmware, but I'm not sure in success - my KVM switchbox don't have any serial port for firmware uploading...

Hello Alex,
To eliminate the obvious just connect the Keyboard & Mouse directly to the server rather then going through KVM. See if you still have any problems. If not then it will exhibit the proper cause of malfunction.

Hi!

I solved this problem. Problem source is really ATEN KVM switch! When I change this switch to a HP 8 port console switch all troubles has disappeared!

Thanks for help...
