Can anyone relate experience with implementing the IBM LCM16 KVM switch in a tiered configuration?  We are spec'ing approximately 500 node x86 cluster.

Since you can daisy chain up to 16 servers per port, I would expect the supported maximum servers to be greater than 256 with two or three tiered LCM16 units.  Or does each port connect only one target system in a tiered configuration.

The specs state only up to 256 target systems are supported in a tiered configuration.
