Answer: Thank you for your inquir,
The Raritan DLX-216 does indeed support the D2CIM HDMI dongles (D2CIM-DVUSB-HDMI). The DLX series is plug and play - no software, and no other accessories are needed besides the KVM dongles.
Question: Can virtual media CIMs utilize a USB stick plugged into one of the USB ports on the DLX-216 itself?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
Targets with a Virtual Media CIM connected can indeed utilize a USB stick plugged into one of the USB ports on the DLX-216 itself.
The back panel of each Raritan Dominion LX model, such as this DLX-216, features three USB 2.0 ports for supported USB devices. If you use two of these ports for local user station (i.e. a Keyboard and a Mouse), you set the USB profile of the third port on the model to accept a USB flash drive stick.
You can also attach and mount virtual USB media devices remotely to the target servers.
Up to two virtual media devices simultaneously can be mounted to a target. For example, you can mount a specific USB flash drive, use it, and then disconnect it when you are done. The virtual media "channel" will remain open, so that you can virtually mount another USB flash drive. These virtual media "channels" remain open until the KVM session is closed as long as the USB profile supports it.
Note, you must use one of the following CIMs to use virtual media:Raritan DLX manual starting at page 82.
