Introduction
HP Server Console Switches are key components for rack mount implementations (a console represents one keyboard, video monitor, and mouse (KVM)
attached to a server). The family of HP Server Console Switches allows multiple servers in a rack to be accessed and managed by one keyboard, monitor, and
mouse. By using a console, as many as 128 computers running different operating systems can be managed. The 8-Port and 16-port Server Console Switches
feature an On-Screen Display (OSD) interface, which has intuitive menus for accessing each attached computer. Servers can be identified by a user-defined
name or sequentially by number, enabling easy access to connected servers.
HP Server Console Switches can be connected in a tiered fashion, to increase server access from eight servers to as many as 128 servers. (256 servers if tiering
to an HP IP Console Switch) Switching between computers is accomplished by typing a switching command at the keyboard, or by using the mouse to
interact with the graphic interface of the selected computer via the OSD.
The HP Server Console Switch family of products is available in 8- and 16-Port versions. The 8-Port model offers single console support via the local user
port, while the 16-port version offers dual console support, allowing the flexibility of controlling switch configurations from more than one location, or by
more than one user. Standard rack mounting of the HP Server Console Switches will take up 1U (1.75 ) of front panel rack space. However, the Switches can
also be mounted in a "zero U" profile by mounting in the side rails of the rack, or behind the HP 1U Keyboard Drawer or the 1U TFT5600 Keyboard/monitor
drawer.
Target Applications and Markets
Network Administrators, System Administrators, Engineering Managers, Chief Information Officers, and Managers of Information Systems are all among the
users who will see very tangible benefits from using the HP family of server console switches.
Easy access to multiple servers (any server with PS/2 or USB I/O connection port)
Multi-platform management from one console (Microsoft® Windows®, Novell, UNIX®, Linux etc)
Non-intrusive control and management of servers HP Server Console Switches are "out-of-band
out-of-band,"
out-of-band allowing server activity to be viewed on multiple
systems without interfering in any way.

HP Server Console Switches
Overview
Features
On-Screen Display (OSD) – Displays system-related information on the console monitor, such as selected server name, status, power-up test
data and configuration menus.
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) 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 unauthorized users, the switch box provides a password option for security purposes.
Switch Firmware Update – The application code of the switch can be quickly and easily updated via FLASH ROM. The port communications
settings are automatically configured to allow direct downloading from the connected computer.
Multiple Space Saving 0U Installation Methods –
Side Mount - Rails are provided for mounting the unit to the side of rack cabinets with side mounting capability.
Rear Rack Mount - HP Console Switches may be mounted behind a HP Integrated Keyboard and Drawer (257054-XXX), the TFT5110R rack
monitor or the TFT5600 rack mounted keyboard and monitor with slide rails are provided with the switch.

HP Server Console Switches
Which Model is Best?
Single-user console switches
The single-user HP Server Console Switches has one input (or user) port for one user console (one keyboard, monitor, and mouse) and multiple output (or
system) ports for connecting multiple systems to the switch (one-to-many).
One user has control over multiple computers with a single user switch.
Single user switches can also be tiered (one switch connected to another) via dedicated ARI port to expand the amount of systems controlled by one
user without sacrificing an additional server port.
Expansion modules ……
For example, an 8-port switch uses one of its output system ports to connect to another 8-port switch, yielding a total amount of 16 computers
controlled by one user).

Models
Multi-user console switches
The multi-user server console switch has two user ports for multiple user consoles, and multiple system ports as well (many-to-many). The multi-user console
offer expanded flexibility, such as the following scenarios:
Simultaneous control of servers in both the data center and in other remote locations.
If there are multiple network administrators, a multiple console switch allows each of them to access all of the servers in their data center to diagnose
problems, all from separate locations.

CAUTION: Do not use Interface Adapters to cascade HP KVM Server Console Switches with HP KVM Server Console Switches. If
Interface Adapters are used to cascade these products, undesirable operations might occur.
NOTE: An optional Expansion Module can be added to the HP KVM Server Console Switch system, increasing the total number of accessible servers, only
one level of tiering is allowed and implementing and Expansion Module is considered one level.
NOTE: To perform a firmware upgrade for a cascaded HP KVM Server Console Switch and all attached Interface Adapters; you must locally connect the
keyboard, monitor, and mouse to the cascaded HP KVM Server Console Switch to access the local OSD.
NOTE: The HP KVM Server Console Switch does not support Compaq KVM PCI Cards or HP legacy console switches.
