IBM 1U 17-inch and 19-inch Flat Panel Console Kits
IBM System x at-a-glance guide
These cost-effective Flat Panel Console Kits offer a powerful and convenient way to manage space
constrained rack environments from a single console. These densely packed 1U solutions let you easily
set up and control rack-mounted IBM System x or BladeCenter servers and offer additional space savings
by allowing the mounting of the KVM switch in the 0U space behind the console.
These kits include either a 17" or 19" LCD display and accept an UltraNav keyboard available in 29
languages (the keyboard must be ordered separately). The 19-inch kit also includes as standard a
multi-burner drive and USB port for additional convenience.

Did You Know?
Beyond a larger screen size, the 19” Console Kit, when coupled with the IBM GCM2 or LCM 2 and VCO
dongles, creates a virtual media solution that allows for the out-of-band transfer of data to deploy or patch
multiple servers from one local console either through the integrated USB pass thru or integrated optical
drive. This solution offers potential savings by allowing the removal of the optical drive in each server and
eliminating the need to physically locate each server to insert media at the rack.

Popular configurations
Figure 5 shows the 19-inch Flat Panel Console Kit with an UltraNav keyboard and USB optical drive
connected to the IBM GCM2 Console Switch. The console switch is connected to each managed server
using IBM Virtual Media Conversion Option (VCO) cables, one for each server. These VCO cables enable
the sharing of the USB devices (optical drive and any device attached to the USB pass-through port on
the Flat Panel Console Kit) to the managed servers.
Note: The VCO cables do not support chaining of cables.
