The Avocent iKVM switch provides traditional KVM  
switching between server blades in the Dell PowerEdge  
M1000e enclosure as well as a scanning feature, which  
allows administrators to scan through preselected  
blades while pausing for a specific time at each blade.  
They can also select a specific blade through the  
OSCAR main dialog box, as shown in Figure 1. In addi-  
tion to the blade names (which administrators can set  
themselves or pull from the CMC automatically during  
setup) and chassis slot numbers, the OSCAR interface  
provides status information for each blade: a green  
circle, for example, indicates that the blade is online  
and functioning properly, while a red Xmeans the blade  
is offline or not functioning properly. A yellow circle  
indicates that a blade is online but unavailable—for  
example,becauseanotheruseriscontrollingitremotely.  
The letters in the right column provide additional infor-

a user panel (a green letter) or blocked by a specific  
user channel (a black letter), and whether the blade is  
being accessed through the rear panel (the letter A)  
or the front panel (the letter B). When administrators
