Screen Resolution

The KX132 supports 1280x1024@60Hz max resolution --- we have a 19" LCD panel on it that matches this.

The Raritan doesn't pass the monitor info through --- the OS can't probe the monitor. So set something like this in xorg.conf

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier "Monitor0"
        VendorName "Dell" 
        ModelName "Dell 1901fp on Raritan"
   HorizSync 30 - 70
   VertRefresh 55 - 65
   DisplaySize 386 290

Section "Screen"
   Identifier "Screen0"
   Device     "Videocard0"
   Monitor      "Monitor0"
   DefaultDepth     24
   SubSection "Display"
      Depth     24
                Modes    "1280x1024" 


UM site has 2 KVMs, in LSA and Randall. In order to use the KVM, one could first download the Raritan Multiple Platform Client.

The configurations for the client are:

1) LSA


2) Randall


Hints of using KVM
Log out from one connection

Hit the StrLk key twice to log out from the connection (Please note, if it is connected by one user, then other users can not log in. So always log out from the connection after you are done)
Switch to different machines for the blade nodes

Hit the PrtScn to switch among different blade nodes (bl-X nodes)
