    3 Rack Servers, 1 monitor

    Hi..noob here,


    I just bought Three rack servers and I have only 1 monitor at home...
    Server 1 : apache server
    Server 2 : Mysql server
    Server 3 : Mail server


    OK here's the question....is it possible to use 1 monitor for 3 servers? so I can monitoring my 3 servers?
    I did googling ...but I haven't find any tutorial to setup multiple servers with 1 monitor.

    If that possible...how you do it?


    Thanks in advance..

    You need to use something like the following:
    http://www.keyzone.com/elec-kvm/autoview_commander.htm

    Basically it plugs in to the back of all your servers where you would normally plug the monitor, keyboard etc in so all the servers now connect to the KVM - then you plug your monitor, keyboard etc in to the KVM and your away. Usually you just hit 'Print Screen' or equivelent and it brings up a litte GUI and you select which server you want to display on the monitor.
