  Infuriating KVM mouse jumping 
 Date Written 
Seth Hoffman Jan 26, 2012, 04:04pm EST Report Abuse
At work we have 5 server racks using 4 KVM units which tie back to 2 control stations. On some of the KVM channels the mouse will constantly jump all over the screen and reset back to the upper left corner, which is extremely aggravating. At first we thought it was just an issue on a bad server we were nursing, we just replaced the server with a brand new DL380 G7 and the mouse does the same thing. I have tried all 4 KVM's, different KVM cables, and several ports per KVM, all produce the same problem. I have tried PS2 and USB mice/keyboard combos as well. Other servers on the same KVM work fine.

I'm convinced it's some setting on the server itself but I can not find what it is. If I plug a mouse and keyboard directly into the server front panel they work fine.

Any ideas? I'd be a hero at work if I could get this sorted out.

Does the KVM have any settings? Or is it a basic model?

What is the model of the KVM?

The KVMs are all Avocent Autoview 2015.

I had a similar problem when I swapped out a Dell 15FP kmm for a Dell LED185KMM...

Reflashed the firm ware and it fixed it.
