Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
You can absolutely adapt the local DVI output to VGA. The Raritan DSX2-32 features a digital DVI-D output for the local console, so you would need an Active Converter like the Raritan CVT-DVI-VGA to support analog VGA. You can find a full list of our video converters & adapters here.
