HP-UX console switch box

I need to replace my HPUX K series console switch box. Belkin is no longer making F1B031 model. My question is: Is there any special requirment for the switch box? Can I use any DB-25 female switch box?

Any helps are appreciated.

Re: HP-UX console switch box

Well, I wouldn't go so far as to say ANY because that might includes those with no internal connections as well as thse with random connections but, in general, any straight-wired AB(CDE ...) switch manually or electronically controlled will work. Though not absolutely necessary, I look for those that switch all 25 connections so that I know that they will work.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

I have used just a generic ABCD switch box with no issues.

You are in the land of just try it and find out..

We're not using any switchbox at all.
Why not connect and use the LANconsoles? Accessible from any place on your LAN. If you're concerned about security, create a systemmangement-LAN with restricted access.

I would think a switch box would be fine. The K servers from what I remember didn't have a GSP for telnet type of console connection. If you have a web console you could hook it up and config it.

I thought I assigned the points already. But I guess I did not. Sorry about that.
