True, there is no problem with RDP connections, but sometimes you simply
want to connect directly to the console, either with a physical
mouse/keyboard, or with ilo (remote console).

In both cases, the keyboard/mouse will not work when not connected
during reboot.

I tried to use the windows 2000 workaround on the 2003 system, but no
luck unfortunately..

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

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



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....
