Default Resolution issues with IPKVM

I have several Sun Ultra 20 and 40 systems that have Nvidia Quadro cards in them. I build the systems using jumpstart and after the jumpstart I automatically install the nvidia drivers. When the systems were directly connected to a monitor and keyboard we built them without any issues. We were able to get the require resoltuion of 1280x1024 easily and could adjust it with nvidia-settings. After these systems were built we connected them to an Avocent DSR8030 IPKVM and they continued to work great at the high resolution.

Recently we performed a new Jumpstart while the systems were connected to the IPKVM but at the end of the jumpstart we were only able use a resolution of 640x480. When I ran nvidia-settings there were no options for other resolutions. I next turned to the nvidia readme and adjusted some settings with no luck.

A few of the things that I changed:
In the "Screen" section
Option "UseEDID" "False"
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP, TV"

Remove all "display" subsections except for
SubSection "Display
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024"

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Here is a possible approach to your Avocent DSR8030 problem...

Update DSR firmware. http://www.avocent.com/support/default.aspx?id=6314

Possibly reboot the Sun server. It seems the Nvidia card is not properly reading the DDC string from the DSR.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for responding.

The DSR8030 was already updated with the latest firmware (

Also I have rebooted the system many times.
