2. Installation
2.1 Rackmounting Instructions for Console KVMs
The NetDirector Console KVM Switch is designed for mounting in a 1U rack system. For
convenience, a rack mounting kit is included with your KVM for quick installation. The
various mounting options are explained in the sections that follow:
Note:
1. It is recommended that the unit be installed by two people; one to hold it in place and the other to attach it to the
rack.
2. The rackmounting kit that comes with the unit does not include screws or cage nuts. Contact your rack dealer for
this hardware.
3. Allow at least 5.1 cm on each side for proper ventilation, and at least 12.7 cm at the rear of the unit for the power
cord and cable kits.
Standard Rackmounting
1 Slide out the rear mounting brackets from the console and mount both brackets
(separate from the console) to the inside rear of a standard 1U rack system using usersupplied screws.
2 Take the console and gently slide it into the two rear-mounted brackets in the rack and
secure the console in place by inserting user-supplied screws.

2
2-Post Rackmounting
The NetDirector Console KVM Switch can also be mounted in a 2-post rack installation
using the optional 2-Post Rackmount Kit (model: B019-000). The mounting hardware
allows for the console to be opened with the drawer in any position. Heavy-duty 14-gauge
steel provides stability and prevents the console frame from twisting. See the B019-000
instructional manual for detailed mounting instructions.
2.2 Rackmounting for B022-U16
Insert screws to connect to rack
Fasten the rackmount brackets to the rack using user-supplied screws to install in a rack.

2. Installation
2.3 Single-Station Installation
1.Ensure that power to all the devices to be
connected has been turned OFF.
5
2.Connect the included USB/PS2 Combo
Console Cable Kit to the console connector
on the back of the unit, and then connect a
monitor, mouse and keyboard to the
appropriate connectors on the cable kit.
The distance between the external console
and the KVM switch must not exceed 66 ft
(20 m). Note: This step is mandatory for
B022-U16 KVM Switches, but is optional
for Console KVM Switches.

3.Use a P778-Series USB/PS2 Combo KVM Cable Kit to connect each CPU port to a
computer/server. The distance between the KVM switch and each connected computer
must not exceed 33 ft (10 m).
4.Plug the power cord or power adapter cable into the KVM’s power jack, then plug into a
UPS, surge or other AC power source. Turn on the power switch for the console KVM.
(Not required for the B022-U16.)
5.Turn ON the power to the computers.
2.4 Multiple Station (Daisy-Chained) Installation
To control even more computers, up to 31
B022-016 or B022-U16 KVM Switches can
be daisy-chained down from the first station.
Note: As many as 512 computers can be controlled from
the unit’s integrated console in a complete installation.
To set up a daisy-chained
installation:
1.Ensure that power to all the devices to be
connected has been turned OFF.
2.Use a daisy-chain cable (described in the
Cables section, page 2) to connect the
Chain Out port of the parent unit to the
Chain In port of the child unit. The
distance between any two KVM switches
in a daisy-chain must not exceed 49 ft (15
m). The distance between the first KVM
switch and the last KVM switch in a daisychain must not exceed 328 ft (100 m),
regardless of the number of KVM switches
in the entire chain.

2.4 Multiple Station (Daisy-Chained) Installation
3.Use a KVM cable kit (described in the Cables section, page 2) to connect the keyboard,
video and mouse ports of a computer to any available port on the KVM switch. The
distance between the KVM switch and each connected computer must not exceed 33 ft
(10 m).
4.Repeat the above steps for any additional KVM switches you wish to add to the chain.
5.Power up the installation according to the following procedure:
a. Plug in the power adapter for the first station. Wait a few seconds to allow the unit to
determine its Station ID.
b. Plug in the power adapters for each subsequent station in the installation in turn (ie.
second station, then third station, etc.). Each KVM switch has an LED display on its
front panel to indicate its Station ID (the Station ID for the first station is 01, the ID
for the second station is 02, the ID for the third station is 03, etc.).
In each case, wait for the Station ID to be displayed on the Station ID LED before
plugging in the next station.
2.5 Multiple Station (Cascaded) Installation
The B022-U16 KVM Switch can be cascaded off of a B020-008-17-IP or B020-016-17-IP
Console KVM Switch to expand the number of connected computers. Before you can start
a cascaded installation, you must upgrade the B022-U16 firmware to be cascade
compatible. (See the Firmware Upgrade section on page 18 of the owner’s manual for
details.) For cascaded installation details, see the owner’s manual of the B020-008-17-IP or
B020-016-17-IP Console KVM Switch.

3. Basic Operation
3.1 Opening the NetDirector Console KVM
The console is located under the top cover.
To access the console, slide the console
module out and raise the cover.
Note: As a safety precaution, to keep the console from
accidentally sliding out, the console is locked into the in
position. Before you can pull the console module out, you
must release it by pushing the catches on the unit’s front
panel toward the center of the switch.
3.2 Closing the NetDirector Console KVM
To slide the console module back in, close
the cover and do the following:
1.Pull the safety catches on the unit’s side
rails toward you and push the module in
until it stops.
2.Release the catches; pull the module
slightly toward you; then push it all the
way in.
Note: The reason for the two-step procedure is to
minimize the chances of pinching your fingers when
sliding the module in.
4. OSD (On-Screen Display) Operation
4.1 OSD Overview
The On-Screen Display (OSD) is a text-based interface that allows for control and
administration of the KVM switch. When logging onto the KVM switch, the OSD Main
Menu is the first screen you will see after entering your username and password.
4.2 Logging In For The First Time
The KVM switch features a two-level security, with one Administrator and four User
accounts. If you are an Administrator accessing the KVM switch for the first time, leave
the username and password field blank and hit the [Enter] key twice to access the OSD
Main Menu. Once logged into the KVM switch as Administrator, you will be able to access
all OSD features and customize KVM settings. At this point, it is highly recommended that
you change the Administrator username and password.

4. OSD (On-Screen Display) Operation continued
4.3 OSD Invocation Sequence
Once logged into the KVM switch, you will need to use one of two sequences to open the
OSD Main Menu; [Scroll Lock, Scroll Lock] or [Ctrl, Ctrl]. The default OSD invocation
sequence is [Scroll Lock, Scroll Lock]. Note: When using the [Scroll Lock, Scroll Lock]
OSD invocation sequence, you must hold down the [Fn] key, as the [Scroll Lock] key is part
of the [Num Lock] key.

When you invoke the OSD, a screen similar to the one above appears:
Note:
1. The diagram depicts the Administrator’s Main Screen. The User Main Screen does not have the F4 and F6
functions, since they can’t be accessed by ordinary Users and are reserved for the Administrator.
2. OSD always starts in List view, with the highlight bar at the same position it was when it was last closed.
3. Only the ports that have been set accessible by the Administrator for the currently logged in User are visible.
4. If the port list is collapsed into stations, simply click on the plus sign next to the desired station number, or
highlight the desired station number and hit the [Enter] key.
4.4 OSD Navigation
• To close the menu and deactivate OSD, click the [X] at the upper right corner of the
OSD Window; or press [Esc].
• To logout, press [F8], or click F8, on the OSD Menu Bar or click the zZz symbol at the
upper right hand corner of the OSD Screen.
• To move up or down one line at a time, click the Up and Down Triangle symbols ()
or use the Up and Down Arrow Keys. If there are more entries than appear on the screen,
the screen will scroll.
• To move up or down one screen at a time, click the Up and Down Arrow symbols (),
or use the [Pg Up] and [Pg Dn] keys. If there are more entries than appear on the screen,
the screen will scroll.
• To activate a port, double-click it, or move the Highlight Bar to it then press [Enter].
• After executing any action, you automatically go back to the menu one level above.
