Question: Is the cable will work with the Dell KVM 0108AD? Or will I need to use the DSRIQ? Thanks In advance.
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This integrated access cable would work without the DSRIQ. However, we are not familiar with the DELL KVM 0108AD and can find no concrete information on that part number.
We can say this is a proprietary Avocent KVM cable for use with Avocent KVMs only. while we know that some DEll branded KVMs are manufactured by Avocent, we could not say whether this cable would work or not.
Question: client is having a problem with 3016 and single usb cable connected to IBM AIX server any suggestions?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, detailed product support is beyond the scope of this simple product FAQ. The AutoView 3016 manual linked here: https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/av3016-001.html lacks a troubleshooting section, but may provide some insights.

Question: can I use this cable with my avocent IPKVM MPU2032 switch: with OS version 18.104.22.16829?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This particular cable is for use with the AutoView series of Avocent KVMs.
For the MergePoint Unity series, you will need an MPUIQ-VMCHS: https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/mpuiq-vmchs.html.
Question: Hello, I'm integrating 5 ECS17KMM8-001 Kvm'S with 5 Dell NVR/Servers. How many cables, and of what type will I need?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. The ECS17KMM8 uses the 8-port Avocent AutoView 3008 KVM, which uses the AVRIQ series of dongles or the USBIAC series of integrated access cables.
A few of the options include:
You would need one cable/dongle for each server you wanted to attach to the KVM. The AVRIQ dongles would also require additional CAT5 cabling.
However, please note, you can only use one cable per server. If the intention is to have each server available from each rack console, a different type of solution will need to be used. If on the other hand each console will access only a single server, it may be worth your while to use a rack console without integrated KVM like the Raloy RW119: https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/rw119-n-101.html.
Question: Can you tell me if this cable works correctly with the Dell Avocent DAV2108? We are looking to use these cables to connect from the Avocent to the server. Thanks
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. The USBIAC-7 is an integrated Avocent access cable for use with Avocent AutoView KVM Switches. If the DAV2108 is a Dell branded Avocent AutoView switch, it is possible this cable could work. However, we could not guarantee compatibility.
Question: Will these work on USB 3.0 Ports
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. We have confirmed with the manufacturer that as long as the USB 3.0 port is backward compatible and is not a dedicated USB power port, it should work. Please note, though it should work with a backward compatible USB 3.0 port, it will not provide USB 3.0 speeds.
Question: Will this work with Avocent Autoview 2108? Having to replace older KVM which died and want to sue same cables.
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
All of the Avocent Itegrated KVM Cables including the USBIAC-7 are fully compatible with the newer Avocent AV2108-001 switch. For a full list of compatible cables please visit the product page.

Question: What is the difference between the USBIAC-x [where x=7', 10', 15'] and the AVRIQ-USB2 module? What is the application of each?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. The USBIAC-x and the ARIQ-USB2 serve the same basic function, to attach a server to a particular Avocent KVM switch (AutoView series). The main difference is that the USBIAC-x has a CAT5 cable integrated right into the Server Interface Module (SIM), where the AVRIQ-USB2 would require a CAT5 cable to be attached between the SIM and the KVM unit. This allows more flexibility in the placement of the server in relation to the KVM switch. With the AVIQ-USB2, a user can run cable lengths up to 100 feet depending on the quality of the CATx cable and environmental factors.
The more expensive AVRIQ-USB2 is also required for virtual media support.
Question: Is the USBIAC-7 cable compatible with the LRA185KMM16-001?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
Avocents Integrated VGA KVM Cables, including the USBIAC-7 KVM Cable, are indeed fully compatible with the Avocent (by Vertiv) LRA185KMM16 console drawer. This also applies to all other LRA185KMM Console Drawer with integrated AV3XXX KVM Switches.
