Having a hard time with Lantronix
The new DC that we are working with offered KVM to install and configure our nodes, it happens that they use the Lantronix Spider Duo, we are used to working with ILOs and others, and never experienced so unstable device/software, what should take minutes to do it take hours, the problems happens like this:
1)You use a browser to login and start the KVM
2)the KVM uses Java as an interface, after changing the java security you are able to connect
3)after 30 seconds of connection the java screen freezes and says at the bottom " Can't write key code Javanet socket exception socket closed".
4) then you have to close the java go back to the browser to start again
5)when you click to start the KVM the browser redirect to login page so you need to login again and this repeats several times.
6)now If you need to login to your OS when you type your credentials goes like that:
so you press on the keyboard once and it repeats the character several times,
This you can correct when you can see but you will need to type you the password to login and that you can not see and correct, so big amount of time is spent in login process, after login, the issue remains and the character has to be corrected again and again.
What I don't know if it is my fault on configuring the Java, the java interface or the Lantronix itself, I'd like to know if somebody else has any experience with this issue.
