The following document explains why I've been having the problem with
getting the SunFire V240 connected to the Raritan Paragon I.  The UUSBPD
is the part that I started out with, but my server had already been
patched so I was not able to view the monitor.  Then I called Raritan
and asked what parts do I need to connect to the Paragon with if I have
a server with USB ports.  I was even told by Raritan that the UUSBPD was
obsolete and to discard the part.  Needless to say I did discard it ...
but I went back into the server room and dug it up.  I'm glad I did.  A
Raritan engineer was onsite yesterday and we went through all of the
scenarios that I'd tested and he was able to duplicate the problem.  The
last thing he inquired about was changing mouse settings which I called
Sun about because I didn't have access to the CDE and I wanted to know
if there was a command that could be given to change/show mouse settings
from command line.  That is when this article was found below.  I've
been on this problem for weeks.

Raritan indicated that they could not duplicate my problem ... since
they were not patched to the level I was patched to 115553-19...that is
why their server didn't break in the lab.

I've backed the patch off and used the UUSBPD as indicated below and all
is well for now.  I'll await a fix for this so I don't have to be
concerned about installing a patch cluster and having to back out the
patches that may cause a problem.
