Mechanical loading
Mount the equipment in the rack in such a way that a hazardous
condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
Circuit overloading
When connecting the equipment to the supply circuit, consider the
effect that overloading of circuits might have on over-current protection
and supply wiring.
Reliable electrical grounding of rack-mounted equipment should be
maintained. Provide attention to supply connections other than direct
connections to the branch circuit (e.g., use of power strips).
Avoiding general rack-mounting problems
Elevated operating ambient temperature
The operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be
greater than the room ambient when installing into a closed or multiunit
rack assembly. Install the equipment in an environment compatible with
the maximum rated ambient temperature.
Reduced airflow
Install the equipment in a rack in such a way that the amount of airflow
required for safe operation is not compromised. Leave a gap of at least
5cm/2 inches on each side of the Switch.

The Server Interface Modules (SIMs)
Each computer/server is directly connected to the Switch via the appropriate SIM using CAT5 cables in a star configuration. No external power is
needed at the remote SIMs. The SIMs draw their power from the computer’s keyboard port (PS/2 SIM) or from the USB port (USB SIM). The figures
below illustrate the SIM PS/2 and USB.

Press “F2”. The Settings window appears (see Figure 11).
By default, the Switch boots with an automatically assigned IP address
from a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server on the
network. The DHCP server provides a valid IP address, gateway
address, and subnet mask.
You can identify the IP address from the OSD at the local position. You
can set the IP address locally via the OSD where there is no DHCP
server as follows:

Mounting a Drive
1.
With virtual media, you can virtually mount removable mass storage
devices connected to the client computer onto the target server.
Click “Virtual Media” and the “Virtual Media” dialog box appears
(see Figure 36). All connected mass storage devices appear in the
“Local Drives” section.
This includes:
•
Floppy drives
•
CD-ROMs
•
DVD-ROMs
•
ISO images of CD\DVD
•
USB flash drives (disk on key tokens)
•
Miscellaneous USB memory sticks/cards identified by the operating
system as removable mass storage devices
Setup
Virtual media is only supported by server ports 1 and 2. You must
connect a separate USB cable to VM ports 1 and 2 located on the back
of the Switch and match to the corresponding servers connected to
server ports 1 and 2.

Click “OK”. The device mounts onto the target server and
appears as a removable or CD/DVD drive of the target server. It
also appears in the “Mounted Drives” section in Figure 36. Once
mounted, you can use the device during the remote session as if it
is connected to the target server.

Mounting an ISO file
An ISO image (.iso) is a disk image of an ISO 9660 file system, and
refers to any optical disc image, even a UDF image. In addition to the
data files in the ISO image, it also contains all the file system metadata,
including boot code, structures, and attributes. All of this information
is contained in a single file. These properties make it an attractive
alternative to physical media for the distribution of software that requires
this additional information as it is simple to retrieve over the Internet.
Because virtual media emulates USB 1.1 over a TCP connection, it has a
number of limitations that govern the virtual-media compatibility
and operation.
•
Virtual media emulates USB 1.1. It doesn’t emulate USB 2.0.
•
Virtual media redirects the client’s local DVD/CD or removable
mass storage devices to a target server during the open client
session only. This means if the remote client session disconnects,
the mounted drives will be automatically dismounted from the
target server.
•
Maximum data transfer speed of the virtual media doesn’t
exceed 5.0Mbps.
OmniViewIP 5216K/5232K

•
Only drives identified by the client’s operating system as drives
with removable storage can be mounted as virtual media. Many
USB-attached hard disks identify themselves to the operating
system as hard-disk drives and can’t be used for virtual-media
mounting.
•
Booting from a mounted virtual-media drive is possible only if the
target server supports booting from USB-attached storage.
•
Currently, it is not possible to boot a target server from Linux
distribution mounted as virtual media.
•
Windows CD/DVD, or its modifications such as Winternals ERD
Commander, WinPE, BartPE, or similar, can be used for booting
the target server when mounted as virtual media.
•
Mounting removable mass storage devices such as USB flash
drives (disk on key tokens) or miscellaneous USB memory sticks/
cards will remove them from the client’s operating system and
redirect them with read/write access permissions to the target
server to ensure the integrity of write operation.
•
Connection timeout will not occur at the time the virtual media
remains mounted.
To mount an ISO file, click “Mount ISO File”, locate the file, and mount it.
