I just received a new to me XS23-ty3 complete with 4 nodes. It powers up fine all the LEDS seem to work but when I connect a monitor to any of the nodes VGA outputs there is no output. Also when I connect a USB keyboard to any of the USB ports I can't turn the num lock on/off and get the led on the keyboard to light. Works fine on my desktop.
This is a single powersupply chassis.
I removed all the nodes and tried one at a time. still no joy.

Am I missing something really simple here.
I cannot seem to get into the bios setup on any of the units.
Are the nodes made by Supermicro?

Thanks for the assistance.

Some server models allow you to turn off local VGA.

The nodes are not made by SM from what I have heard.

Thanks. My question is how do I get to the bios so I can get everything set up?
Is there some kind of reset somewhere I can jumper?

Glenn.
