Can't you just plug in the periphs' and reboot?
If the server is remote and the only connection to it you have is RDP (is this
the case?), I've found that even if the server is running headless, when
connecting over RDP the local mouse and kbd are still recognized.

Subject: [windows2000] keyboard/mouse not recognized when plugged in running



I do have an issue with a windows 2003 server. This server is running, and I
want to connect a keyboard/mouse to it.

Unfortunatelly, the keyboard/mouse are nog recognized since they were not
attached during boot.. 


I had the same issue on windows 2000, but there was a workaround from
Microsoft where you added the headless=1 registry..

Here is the article:

It does not seem to work for windows 2003...


I wonder if anyone ever had this issue and found a solution..
