I'm just building a new VI3 farm (10x HP DL380G5 with dual Quadcores), using this HP IP-KVM switch:
And the AF604A USB media adapters.
Bad news: Keyboard and mouse are not working within the ESX console
After some reading maybe I found the reason: The switch uses composite-usb to connect with keyboard, mouse and virtual media?!
Does anyone knows a workaround or a way to get this hardware working?
I suggest you contact HP. I Have yet to see the composite USB work in ESX.
Hmm, even HP SmartStart 7.7.0 doesn't recognize keyboard and mouse
On the other hand, Windows 2003 Server ist working like a charm!
