    Question Remote management options what do you use...

    What if anything do you use to remote manage your colocated servers ?

    Obviously if they're up & running there's VNC/Terminal Services/pcAnywhere etc, but what about bios level management ?

    Does kvm over ip realy work ?

    Do you have a management card inside the server ?

    What about machines that won't boot without a keyboard attached ...

    I am also looking for some affordable KVM over IP solutions, however the only decent one I found was dell's, and it started @ $4500 +.. I'd settle on 1 remote user, but would prefer 2 +

    Avocent seems to be come up alot in KVM over IP solutions. They do come around ebay some times, but there is very little.
