The UMIQ module is used to connect a server to the UMG appliance. The module has a VGA port, USB port, and one RJ-45 port to connect to the server (RJ-45 for the IMM service processor), and one RJ-45 port to connect to the UMG appliance. The module provides VGA/vMedia access and service processor access.
The UMIQ module requires full USB bus power to operate correctly. The DC power plug is useful for servers that do not provide sufficient power, for devices that lack USB interfaces, or for provisioning stations where the UMIQ module is moved regularly from one server to another.
While the UMIQ module has power from USB or DC, it is considered to be at full power and can maintain the secure IP connection with the appliance and KVM sessions with users. If the UMIQ module loses power but is still connected to the appliance, the UMIQ module requests that the appliance send standby power through the UTP cable to prevent the UMIQ module from going offline.
The UMIQ module running on standby power cannot support KVM sessions, but it can maintain its connection to the appliance. The UMIQ-v2 module can maintain the bridge between its two ports, ensuring that the SP is always accessible. The appliance uses the DC connector for all of its power needs and the USB plug is used only for data exchange.
