You can broadcast to as many as 16 servers at a time, one server per ARI port.

The keyboard state must be identical for all servers
receiving a broadcast to interpret keystrokes identically. Specifically, the
and
modes must be the same on all keyboards. While the appliance attempts to send
keystrokes to the selected servers simultaneously, some servers may inhibit and thereby delay
the transmission.
For the mouse to work accurately, all systems must have
identical mouse drivers, desktops (such as identically placed icons) and video resolutions. In
addition, the mouse must be in exactly the same place on all screens. Because these conditions
are extremely difficult to achieve, broadcasting mouse movements to multiple systems may have
unpredictable results.

Do not cycle power to the DSR appliance or connected servers, and do not
disconnect DSRIQ modules during a FLASH upgrade. Doing so may render the module
permanently inoperable and require the DSRIQ to be returned to the factory for repair.

Set/Change Password
This password places your DSR terminal in a secure mode. This password should be
guarded like any network password and care should be taken to avoid forgetting or misplacing it.
There are no means for recovering a lost password.

Firmware can also be upgraded using the File - Update Firmware command in the
DSAdmin software. See the DSView Installer/User Guide for more information.
During an OSCAR-initiated upgrade, the DSRIQ status indicator in the Main dialog box
will be yellow.
Disconnecting a DSRIQ during a firmware update or cycling power will render the
module inoperable and require the DSRIQ to be returned to the factory for repair.
