SolaWinds - Keyboard and Mouse Not Available After Restore to Secondary Server

Follow

Summary

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.


More Information

Symptoms

When SolarWinds Failover Engine is restarted following a restore on the Secondary server, the Secondary mouse and keyboard are not available.

Cause

This problem will occur due to the differences in the peripherals controllers.
