I tried to remotely power on a Dell Optiplex 755 (With Wol in Bios enabled) through the agent in the VSA with the option (Wake Machine) but this does not work.I Also tried an Optiplex 745 but without any luck.When i use this option (VSA/Agent/Select offline agent/Wake Machine) on different HP Machines it works perfectly
When i use the utility wol.exe i can power up that Dell machine with the MAC address.
I don't want to use an external script to power up the machines because then i must create scripts for every Customer of us, and i want to allow my collaeges to power up the machines without starting any script.WOL is enabled in the BIOS (powerstate S3)
Does anybody have an answer ?
I can confirm that we are experiencing the exact same issue. Older Dells seem to wake fine, but OptiPlex 380s definitely do not.
I saw this question pop up and asked around, but unlike vPro, Wake On Lan is a rather unique BIOS deal from the OEM....
From our side it is extremely difficult to diagnose when this works and when it doesn't...it really is a black box.
If you're really stuck you can open a ticket and one of our engineers can take a look and maybe we get lucky and can deal with it.
Hi guys we had tested a HP 6000 pro which worked fine but ended up purchasing a couple of hundred Dell Optiplex 990's and not they’re working!! Devastated!
vPro configured and working via web UI, WOL enabled in BIOS
