AFAIK there is no way to get a usb keyboard working as a console on
any sun that did not ship with a usb keyboard.

Since you want to use it as a server, why don't you just disconnect
the keyboard and monitor and use a serial console?

It might be possible to use the usb keyboard after booting, but that's
not a standard configuration.

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
