Detecting attached monitors on MacOS

If you boot MacOS with a KVM attached and a second monitor is not actually attached at boot time, on my 2008 Mac Pro at least, the second monitor is not automatically detected (it works fine if the KVM is already switched to the Mac at boot).

To force MacOS to detect additional monitors, hold the Option key in System Preferences / Displays, and then click on the ‘Detect Monitors’ button that appears.
