HP 0X2X16 KVM SERVER CONSOLE SWITCH USB
Product Code: AF600A
- Product Description
HP's Server Console Switch with Virtual Media is a key component in managing the data center. Connections for two local consoles (a console represents one keyboard, monitor and mouse) allow access to multiple servers running various operating systems. Virtual Media capability allows a USB drive attached directly to the server console switch to be mapped to an attached server for installations and upgrades. The intuitive On-Screen Display (OSD) provides menus for configuration, virtual media, display, and even security and upgrades. In cascaded environments the Server Console Switch with Virtual Media can allow an administrator to manage up to 4096 servers across three tiers from a single console. When tiered with additional HP Server Console Switches with Virtual Media application installations and upgrades can be pushed through to any server on any of the three tiers from a single console.
On-Screen Display (OSD)
• On-Screen Display (OSD): Displays system-related information on the console monitor, such as selected server name, status, power-up test data, configuration menus and virtual media.
• Programmable Scanning: An evaluation of system performance can be made by sequentially scanning any or all of the computers in the system. Programmable scanning allows you to determine which computers to include as well as the duration of the connection.
Configuration NVRAM - NVRAM (non-volatile RAM)
• Configuration NVRAM - NVRAM (non-volatile RAM): makes it easy to set configuration information using commands entered from the keyboard. The NVRAM stores the resulting configuration until a user decision is made to change the information, even if the unit loses power.
• Password Protection: For protection against unauthorised users, the switch box provides a password option for security purposes.
Switch Firmware Update
• Switch Firmware Update: The application code of the switch can be quickly and easily updated via FLASH ROM. Updates can be accomplished over the LAN eliminating the need to carry a notebook into the data center to perform firmware upgrades.
