I got WOL working finally in Landesk. Biggest problem was some Dell OptiPlex’s and the need to disable S4/5 deep sleep in addition to turning on WOL in bios. Tested WOL a number of times after pushing out bios update using Dell CCTK.
One of my test boxes sits here in my office. Last week, I could power it down and bring it back up via console repeatedly.
I come in this morning, and I see the Nic lights on for that box. As I would expect. Box is turned off. I initiate WOL from console . . . . .nothing. I try again. Nothing. I try a third time. Nothing.
So I power up that box and then shut it down. 10 Minutes later, I right click and WOL in console. Machine powers right up via WOL from console.
What gives? The only difference I know of is that I waited over the weekend to WOL this time. Its almost like the longer I let the machine set, the less likely WOL will work. I have seen this several times.
Am I still missing something?
