Question: does it have a reset button?
Answer: The manual does not reference a reset button. There is a Reset/Initialize hotkey sequence to "reset the switch/initialize the daisy-chain setup". You can also load the default factory settings from the OSD Control menu. We have uploaded the manual for you convenience.

If you are looking for a password reset, you may need to contact Avocent directly.

Question: Hi, We have a large display screen in our office, we want to be able to view any one of 3 machines on it at any time. One of the machines is a desktop with its own keyboard and mouse, monitor, the other 2 are laptops with a second display attached. We want to be able to plug in to USB when required and replicate the machines display onto the main display screen. Will this KVM allow me to do this?
Answer: Based on the preliminary information, it sounds like a KVM switch such as this would be an adequate solution. However, there is some more information to consider before determining if this particular product is the best choice. Particularly, the application of the laptops in the solution and how the "secondary displays" are integrated. Please give us a call at 1-877-586-6654 to discuss.

Question: Whether it has SNMP support
Answer: Unfortunately no, this switch does not support SNMP. However, this IP KVM by Raritan does: https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/dlx-108.html

Question: Is this product NIAP approved?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This product is not specifically mentioned as being NIAP approved. For a selection of secure Avocent switches, that have varying levels of NIAP validation, please see: https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/avocent-switchview-sc.html.

Question: Does the kvm come with necessary cables?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. To offer the greatest flexibility in selecting cable lengths, this switch doesn't ship with KVM cables. Select CBL0029 for 6 ft, CBL0030 for 9 ft, or CBL0031 for 15 ft connections.

The unit does ship with a rackmount kit, power supply, daisy-chain cable, upgrade cable and a ground terminator.

Question: com port cable one site com port which port second side
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. If we understand your question correctly, the one end of the firmware upgrade cable should attach to the RS-232 serial port of the host server. The other end would attach to the "Daisy Chain In" port on the SwitchView 1000.

Question: i am using this product but right now i have a problem it just says "cable not connected" but i plugged correctly like previous i used . can u help me what is the problem?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, detailed product support is beyond the scope of this simple FAQ. There are a number of reasons why your KVM might have connectivity issues, all dependent on the particular environment.

After making sure all the cables are fully seated, one of the next steps would be to "power cycle" the KVM to see if that helps. Power cycle the 8SV1000 by unplugging the AC-DC adapter (wall pluggable power supply)and waiting for one full minute and then plugging it back in. Wait another full minute for the SV1000 to perform it's Power On Self Test (POST).

For further product support we would recommend contacting the manufacturer, Avocent, directly at http://www.emersonnetworkpower.com/en-US/About/contactus/Pages/default.aspx.

Question: Is the power supply for the 4, 8 and 16 port models the same?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. We are having a hard time confirming this, but all the literature shows the same power information for all SwitchView 1000 switches.

Operating Voltage: AC 100 - 240VAC 50/60 Hz
Input Power: DC 9V

We would be reluctant to, and could not in anyway, 100% guarantee they were the same; but it seems likely and at the very least, they use the same input power.
