This server is getting a bit old now but still works well except for some minor problems I will start to record in here.
Excessive disk I/O caused by audiodg.exe
The Microserver does not have a soundcard when using Remote Desktop on Windows 10 it creates a Remote Audio driver .
This remote Remote Audio driver should be disabled using the Device Manager console as per below:
Disable by right-clicking and chose “Disable”
Don’t ask me why the disk I/O happens – it’s one of those things…
KVM Viewer does not open
This is a Java based tools and only really works in Internet Explorer.
However IE has changed over time so the pop-up does not work any more.
This is especially true in this case for:
- Windows 8.1 64-bit or Windows 10 64-bit
- Java 6 (if you have any newer then de-install these)
- Internet Explorer 11
1. Click Launch KVM Viewer
2. Click Open
3. Pick Application
Click: More Options
Default Open With./.. windows opens
Click: Look for another app on this PC
However this points to x64 programs so change to: Program Files (x86)
Click on Java (which is now a 32-bit Java) and go down to the bin directory:
Pick the Java Web Start executable: javaws.exe
And the KVM should start just fine…
