This Knowledgebase article provides a procedure to be used when installing SolarWinds Failover Engine on a server pair when the Primary server only has USB ports and the Secondary server does not have PS/2 ports for a keyboard and mouse.
When SolarWinds Failover Engine is restarted following a restore on the Secondary server, the Secondary mouse and keyboard are not available.
This problem will occur due to the differences in the peripherals controllers.
Ensure that the mouse and keyboard peripherals are using the same type of connectors. Either add a USB mouse and keyboard to the Primary server and repeat the cloning process or add a PCI PS/2 card to the Secondary server and repeat the Secondary installation.
