KVM0216A KVM Series Bus Communication Behavior


Product Line
  • KVM Switches
    • KVM0216A Enterprise Analog

Environment
  • All installations

Cause

The next generation enterprise analog KVM boasts (2) local console users, and (16) ports. It also supports (1) or (2) bus cascading. When a local connection is simultaneously being used with a cascade connection, some pieces of information should be taken under advisement for expected (2) user operation.


Resolution

On the KVM0216A, the front DB-15 connection port is for use with an optional AP5717/AP5719 Rack LCD Console with the KVM-LCDMOUNT kit. This front port, the top cascade port (Cascade 2) and local console #2 are both using bus 2, while the bottom Cascade port (Cascade 1) and local console #1 are using bus 1.

  • Bus 1 & Bus 2 are independent from each other

If the priorities are not taken into account, a user may see the following message upon trying to use a local console connection:
