Full-Screen Video Display
With the Dominion KSX II’s full-screen video display, you appear to be directly connected to the target server. You can view the full video display from the target server without window borders or toolbars. A hidden toolbar of KVM client commands is available.
Automated and Manual Bandwidth Settings
Video performance can be configured to match the available network bandwidth. With highspeed LAN access, more bandwidth is available and higher quality video information can be sent, resulting in better performance. When accessing via a limited bandwidth connection, Dominion KSX II can be configured to the limited bandwidth available.
PC Share Mode
Up to eight users can connect and remotely access each KVM – connected server. This feature is very useful for administrator collaboration for teamed troubleshooting.
Serial Console Capabilities
True Serial Access
The Dominion KSX II provides true, remote serial console access to either four or eight serial devices, without the use of expensive serial dongles. Note that simultaneous access to four or eight serial ports is provided, with no blocking. In addition, multiple users can connect simultaneously to a serial device.
Multiple Serial Clients
Access to serial devices is provided via the Raritan Serial Console, SSH or Telnet clients.
Key Logging and History
The Dominion KSX II provides a true serial connection to network devices and serially managed equipment. This includes the ability to log serial sessions and retrieve the session history.
Copy and Paste
You can copy and paste session information between different devices.
Keyword Monitoring and Alerting
You can define, for each port, a set of keywords (port triggers). The KSX II will scan the data coming from the port, and if a keyword is encountered, it will log the event and send alerts via SNMP. This allows for monitoring and alerting of problems with remote devices even when you are not connected.
Session Disconnection Commands
Once you have timed out for inactivity, a user-defined logoff command is sent to the serial device. Improved security of user sessions results, as the next user that connects to the port will need to log in to the target with their own credentials.
Secure Chat Instant Messaging
Allows encrypted instant messaging for online collaboration with other authorized browser users and maximizes the effectiveness of a distributed workforce. Reduces time to resolve problems and allows multi-person troubleshooting.
TCP Port Addressing for Telnet and SSH
Direct port addressing to specific devices via IP address and/or TCP port number for both Telnet and SSH.
Manageability
Remote and Local Management and Administration
You can perform all management, administration and configuration operations, using a simple graphical user interface, remotely from the convenience of your desktop or while in the data center.
Centralized Management with Raritan CommandCenter Secure Gateway
Like the rest of the Dominion series, Dominion KSX II features CommandCenter Secure Gateway integration, allowing enterprise users to consolidate all Dominion devices into a single logical system, accessible from a single IP address and under a single management interface.
Remote Power Control
The Dominion KSX II has two dedicated power control ports for Raritan PDUs like the Dominion PX. This enables you to remotely power cycle IT devices from the KSX II management interface.
SNMP Management and Syslog
The Dominion KSX II SNMP agent distributes SNMP traps for important system events to SNMP management systems. SNMP traps are fully configurable by the administrator. Syslog is also supported.
Plug-and-Play Appliance Offers Quick and Easy Setup
Dominion KSX II is a completely self-contained system (i.e., an appliance). All KSX II features, including authentication and Web access are built into the unit and do not require the use of an additional server.
Command Line Interface
A comprehensive Command Line Interface is available via SSH, Telnet or the local serial port. With the CLI, the user can configure, maintain and troubleshoot the KSX II, as well as connect to serial devices.
