EII has begun using a new model of server computer, the Lenovo M715. For safety, that model will not produce an image of a resolution higher than 640x480 without a monitor connected. This makes viewing the server remotely for troubleshooting purposes very difficult. Luckily, the fix is a one step process. Plugging in a Headless Display Adapter allows the resolution to be adjusted to the desired value.

The resolution will now be adjustable when accessed through a remote connection.
